By Adena Schutzberg

The “flock” of 28 shoe box sized Dove satelltes was just one small container amidst the 2,780 pounds of cargo on the Antares rocket lauched yesterday from Wallops Island, VA.

The plan is for deployment in February with  high-quality images of the Earth being sent to the company soon after.
