The latest set =

Both the launch place and time, and the elsets, agree well with the
VITASAT-1r/FAISAT-2v elements I published before, in spite of the

>The FAISAT-2v/VITASAT-1r launch from Plestesk has been delayed. 

>The launch window has been extended for approx. 10 days beyond the 
>original April 17 launch date, and should occur sometime before April 
>27, depending on  ...

Obviously, only a 3 minute delay was needed :)
