KODIAK ISLAND, Alaska. --  With light still on the horizon, a Lockheed Martin Athena I launch vehicle lifts off the launch pad at Kodiak Launch Complex (KSC) with the Kodiak Star spacecraft on board.  Liftoff occurred at 10:40 p.m. EDT, Sept. 29.  The Kodiak Star payload consists of four satellites:  PICOSat, PCSat, Sapphire and Starshine 3.  Starshine is sponsored by NASA. The 200-pound sphere will be used by students to study orbital decay. The other three satellites, also on educational missions, are sponsored by the department of defense. PICOSat is a technology demonstration satellite with four experiments on board. PCSat was designed by midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy, and will become part of the amateur radio community's automatic position reporting system. Sapphire is a micro-satellite built by students at Stanford University and Washington University - St. Louis to test infrared sensors for space use.   KLC is the newest commercial launch complex in the United States, ideal for launch payloads requiring low-Earth polar or sun-synchronous orbits
