At 9:03 a.m. EST, the Pegasus rocket carrying three ST5 micro-satellites dropped from its carrier jet.

All three of the ST5 satellites have deployed from the Pegasus rocket and are orbiting Earth. Next, each of the spacecraft will be checked to ensure it's functioning properly before beginning its mission evaluating the use of micro-satellite technology and examining the planet's inner magnetosphere.
