PicSat end of mission

On Tuesday 20 March 2018 PicSat suddenly fell silent, after two successful morning passes over Europe. Attempts to re-establish contact have failed, nothing has been heard from the satellite, no sign of life. On Thursday 5 April 2018 the team decided to call the mission to an end. A “pot” (French for party / drink) was organized at noon at the Paris Observatory in Meudon. Sylvestre Lacour did a short speech. Four radio amateurs who have been PicSat fans and great support joined in via a dedicated Google Hangout.
