Hypegram : 88 satellites will launch on Valentine's Day to image the entire Earth every day ARTICLE 76160248 88 satellites will launch on Valentine's Day to image the entire Earth every day english ARTICLE

On Valentine's Day, instead of chowing down on chocolates, a group of engineers and scientists are going to get pancakes and a rocket launch. 

Employees working for Planet — a California-based startup — are planning to watch a record 88 of their tiny satellites launch into orbit while eating breakfast. 

"This [pancake tradition] originated from the very first launch we had back in 2013," Mike Safyan, Planet's director of launch and regulatory affairs, said in an interview. 

"It was an early morning launch and everyone got together and watched the livestream and we decided to eat pancakes and that's just kind of carried over for every single launch we've had so far."
