    Forty-eight of Planet’s Dove satellites—known as Flock 2K—are prepped for launch. Launch prep includes planning for possible failure: Planet lost 26 satellites when the rocket they were attached to blew up on the launch pad. Planet owns satellites, but not rockets, so the company has negotiated with India, Russia, the U.S. and private companies launching their own rockets, to send Doves into space.
