Man, these people that keep insisting that SpaceX has no mission success until all birds are accounted for and talking to the ground... ugh...

 

SpaceX's part ended when those Spaceflight provided payload adapters separated from the second stage, period. The entire set of hardware is properly in orbit, it sooo isn't SpaceX's fault if some of the sats would have ended up DOA.

Correct...seems that it never ends...people sometimes adapt poorly to new concepts.

 

Mission is over when contracted obligations have been fulfilled.

Successful deployment of four microsats and the upper and lower free flyer with additional payloads for Spaceflight SSO-A: SmallSat Express confirmed. Follow @SpaceflightInc for further mission updates.

SpaceX has the telemetry to back this up...and verified independently by...

Six objects from the SSO-A launch cataloged in 573 x 589 km x 97.8 deg sun synch orbit at 1017 local time descending node. These are probably the four sats deployed from the MPC plus the UFF and LFF vehicles. Second stage has probably now deorbited

The ball is in the customers court and hopefully all have success over the next several days.

Here is a listing by r/spacex user strawalker, also an NSF user.

This is much easier to read than mine.

The link below contains verification. NSF has the same.

This will still take time. We are not even sure of the total deployment number and name of payloads since it is not a requirement to inform the general public.

It will all come out in the end...just requires patience.
