Cargo ship-turned-research lab ends mission with re-entry
The Saffire 2 experiment followed a similar investigation hosted on the previous Cygnus cargo mission after it left the space station in June. Spire arranged for the high-altitude drop-off - a first for a space station cargo mission - with Orbital ATK and NanoRacks, the Houston-based company that provided the CubeSat deployer mechanism. It's truly an innovative mission profile and we're honored to ride with Cygnus to space.
