Good point.

If AO-7's magnets work like Microsat magnets, the behavior is a LOT more 
complicated than just flipping over at the poles. The flexible WOD 
capabilities of the Microsats enabled some rather extensive analysis, 
though I'm not certain we ever settled conclusively on a single 
interpretation of the data. Maybe somebody can shed some more light on 
this, so we can compare the Microsat results to the AO-7 observations.
