'Mechanic' satellite blasts off successfully

'Mechanic' satellite blasts off successfully - New Scientist Space:

"A 'mechanic' satellite designed to refuel and repair a partner in space launched successfully late on Thursday. If the three-month mission accomplishes its goals, the feats would be the first of their kind and would lay the groundwork for future autonomous robotic missions to the Moon, Mars and beyond."
