Like so many University projects, MOST started with enormous
fanfare, and has since vanished from public view. Since
the original writeup in the AMSAT Journal there hasn't been
one damned thing in the Journal, nor on amsat-bb.

You know as much about it as I do.

Personally, I wonder what purpose such projects serve.
It certainly cured me of any interest in aerospace as a
career: I do embedded development for pagers and things.
