Hi all;

One of the cubesats that will be deployed on the mission called "ExoCube"
published a preliminar TLE in its webpage:

EXOCUBE
1 99993U 00000    15029.59770833 -.00001134  00000-0 -64350-4 0 00004
2 99993 099.0736 036.6690 0163275 344.1705 144.7582 15.02264856000014

http://polysat.calpoly.edu/launched-missions/cp8-ipex/exocube-tracking/

My elset is:

SMAP estimation                                          669 X 684 km
1 70000U 15500A   15029.65107060 0.00000000  00000-0  00000+0 0    02
2 70000  98.1160  38.3714 0011000 159.0288 245.3072 14.64153000    02

Loading both elsets looks like EXOCUBE's elset has less height than SMAP,
so I suspect that the three cubesats (see:
http://wwdw.cubesat.org/index.php/missions/upcoming-launches/148-elana-10-delta-ii-launch-2015)
will be deployed between SECO-1 and SECO-2. Hoewer, I've did not found any
information about this so I am speculating.

The elset is pretty close in all other orbital values, despite inclination,
that is about one degree off.


Jon.
