ESTCube-1 telemetry and new image download in progress

Just for information, last week we succeeded to spin-up the satellite angular velocity up to 360 degrees per second, now the planning for the tether deployment is going on. If all goes well, we release launch locks of the tether endmass in next 10 days or so. Besides monitoring any kind of ADCS sensors, up to 4 images will be taken and downloaded as well (to (hopefully NOT) detect flying-away endmass because of broken tether).
