NanoSail-D2 Battery Voltage dropped down

This plot shows a rapid battery discharge after the Sail Deployment event, which is when the power-demanding S-Band transmitter was turned on. The satellite was expected to have enough power to live on the order of a day or so beyond the Sail Deployment. This data shows that it still had enough power to broadcast reception-quality data until about 12 hours after the deployment.
