    There were indications that ProSEDS would be launched as a secondary
    payload on the Delta launch carrying GPS satellite 2r-12 originally slated
    for June 4, now postponed to June 9.
    However I can find nothing to confirm that ProSEDS will still be on board,
    nor can I find anything to indicate definitely otherwise.
    Can anyone locate any reliable and up to date information on ProSEDS launch
    date, particularly whether or not it will be on this launch?
    It appears to be an interesting object, described on one site as being at
    the same height as ISS (do we know inclination? - the nature of the
    experiment suggests this could also be similar to ISS,)  and it seems may
    have some interesting  implications in relation to decay prediction.
    Last post in here on this subject appears to be   - a continuing story of delays
    with launch of this object.
