Re: PRESAT, NANOSAIL-D : Failure



Sad to see the loss of those two Amateur Radio Cubesats, 
PreSat 
http://www.amsat.org.uk/iaru/formal_detail.asp?serial=120 
and 
NanoSail-D. 
http://www.amsat.org.uk/iaru/finished_detail.asp?serial=115 

I'm sure we'll see many more launch failures before Falcon eventually provides a reliable service it's the nature of space flight. 

Even 'reliable' launchers can still have a 1 in 10 failure rate.
