I know this is not completely new, but on December 3rd, the satellite I worked on was launched into space!
Needless to say this was an incredible experience seeing your own satellite being delivered to space, and the nervous hours of uncertainty if it will deploy correctly and answer our communication. The good news is: It did! We have some minor problems with interference (having a ground station in the middle of a university campus with a lot of other stuff sending and producing electro-magnetic waves is not the best solution), but nothing too serious. We have a confirmed deployment and the satellite is surviving the eclipse behind Earth, so our active ADCS (Attitude Determination and Control System) is working (that is the part I worked on).
To round up this post, here are some pretty pictures
