Last Friday evening (May 11th), CubeSats from Costa Rico, Kenya, and Turkey were deployed into low earth orbits from the Japanese Kibo module on the International Space Station. This video shows a recording of the live webcast of the event. The Irazu (Costa Rica) and 1KUNS-PF(Kenya) satellites can be seen being shot into orbit (with a spring loaded deployer) at around the 35:00 point and UBAKUSAT (Turkey) at around 45:00.
