Hi all,

The SpaceX/Spaceflight Industry SSO-A launch of coming Monday that includes
Orbital Reflector, has been delayed for additional pre-flight inspections.

There is no new date yet but the grapevine says it will be after Thanksgiving.

Meanwhile, I have posted some results of my modelling of the influence of SRP on
the expected orbital lifetime of Orbital Reflector:
