LightSail partially downloaded sail image This partially downloaded image of LightSail's deployed solar sails was captured by one of the spacecraft's onboard cameras on June 8, 2015. The scrambling and grey area are artifacts of the partially downloaded image; the final product will be full frame and properly arranged. The image is expected to be completed early June 9 during the spacecraft's next ground station overflight.
