Rocket Lab has successfully launched a rocket from New Zealand and placed several objects in orbit, see here for example. One payload is New Zealand's first satellite the Humanity Star, a reflective geodesic that can be seen at night by reflected light.
Unlike Mayak which was supposed to be deployed from a 3U cubesat, then inflated (which it seems didn't happen), the "secret payload" Humanity Star is rigid and filled most of the payload space within the Electron's 2nd stage payload fairing, described in TVNZ's interview of Peter Beck. This suggests it may already be visible! http://www.n2yo.com/satellite/?s=43166 seems to be Humanity Star; it correlates with the tracking option shown at http://www.thehumanitystar.com/
According to Ars Technica's Rocket Lab launched a secret payload into space last weekend:
Humanity Star is something of an experiment. Beck isn't sure it will actually work. Made of carbon fiber materials, the sphere has 65 highly reflective panels, each about the size of a laptop. It truly is intended to act like a giant disco ball, to reflect the Sun's light back to Earth as it flies around the planet in a 300×500km orbit. It will last about nine months before its orbit begins to decay, and Humanity Star begins to fall back toward its cradle.
According to this Math SE answer, the shape can be described as a pentakis pentagonal orthobirotunda, and so should have 80 total sides as the pentakis icosidodecahedron would. In addition to the 65 highly reflective panels and the mounting face (which would account for what looks like five triangles at the bottom as seen in the 2nd image) there may be something like ten triangular panels with other functions.
Question: Does Humanity Star have non-reflective triangular panels, and if so, what are their characteristics and/or purpose?
