´╗┐Twenty four hours have passed since the Atlas launch and no element sets have appeared from Space-Track.

The two satellites (STPSat 6 and LDPE 1) reportedly separated successfully from the atlas upper stage in GEO drift orbit.

STPSat 6 is heading for 83┬░.5 east longitude.

LDPE 1's destination orbit is unknown. It is an experiments platform with several payloads and its design allows for inclusion of Cubesat dispensers..

On a separate note, the Catalogue has been corrected. The Arianespace launch of Dec 6 and Chinese launch of Dec 7 have been moved down in designation number to eliminate the 'phantom' 2021-116.
