Tentative Schedule Released for ARISSat-1

An on-board test of the ARISSat-1 satellite is tentatively scheduled for July 30-31, with a possible launch from the International Space Station on August 3, according to the AMSAT News Service. The launch is tied to the scheduling of a spacewalk, as the satellite is to be hand-launched by space station crew members during that spacewalk ... currently scheduled for August 3. The launch has already been delayed several times.
