Tianzhou-1 releases satellite in orbit- China.org.cn
 By 马玉佳 China's first cargo spacecraft Tianzhou-1 has successfully released a tiny satellite while in orbit.  |  |


apparently the cubesat was stored in the Tianzhou mission and released 104 days later. 

I was wondering if anyone knows of this cubesat? university origin maybe? on our frequencies maybe? at an inclination of 42 degrees it will be very low on the horizon from here in the UK.
Might be an interesting launch possibility for the future?
