Photo: Cubsats shot into orbit from the ISS

I mentioned the other day the deployment of three small cubesat spacecraft (10 cm x 10 cm x 10cm)  from the International Space Station. They were ejected with a special device attached to the Japanese Kibo module. Below is a great photo of the deployment: Cubesats Released From Space Station – NASA
