UPDATE: DRAGONSat Deployed from Endeavour

The DRAGONSat student satellites deployed successfully from Endeavour this morning at 8:35 am EDT, streaking up and over the orbiter as they begin their multiyear mission to study automatic dockings in space.

We captured a NASA-TV image of DRAGONSat several meters above the orbiter, seconds following the deployment.

Deployment came as the orbiter flew some 218 miles over central South America.
