Flight 3 Timeline

The Falcon 1 Flight 3 will carry a payload stack of three separating satellites that will orbit at an inclination of 9 degrees:

1. The Trailblazer satellite, developed by SpaceDev of Poway, Calif.
2. PRESat, a micro laboratory from NASA's Ames Research Center
3. NanoSail-D, which will unfurl an ultra-thin solar sail, developed by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, in collaboration with NASA Ames Research Center.

Here's the timeline of what we should expect during the launch. Time to delivery of all three payloads is 18 minutes and 17 seconds.
