a) congrats @Jan van Br├╝gge

b) did you see that one of the satellites in that launch got ham radio geeks involved to help figure out which one it was? They offered a prize (3D printed logo i think) to the first one who made contact with it on each continent and sent them a specified set of info that'd be useful to help figure out which of the many deployed ones it was.

I would have helped but i just wasn't available and set up for contact at the right time.

How easy is it to get something into space? I imagine there'a a lot of red tape and planning?
