LightSail partially downloaded sail image (reprocessed)
Updated version processed by Emily Lakdawalla: 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 over the course of the spacecraft's future ground station overflights.
