STATUS: NanoSail-D ejected on 1/17/11 at approximately 1900 PST.  Beacon data was routinely received throughout the world from 1/19-21/11, and telemetry indicates that the sail deployed on schedule.  The satellite is now believed to be out of power (which is expected).

STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES - We will be monitoring the satellite's de-orbit over the next few months, and we will post any available visual photographs of the satellite, which are being collected by the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center mission team. And we're brewing up a de-orbit competition, so stay in touch!
