RE: vusat:shocking news



Don't take it as "shocking" news. Its better to test a spacecraft and make
the appropriate changes to increase the probability for mission success.
Launch opportunities cause escalation of commitment amongst satellite
builders, and we have seen entire programs where the mission turned from
whatever the mission objective was to - "we HAVE to make it to launch"... an
orbiting brick doesn't do us hams any good :-)
Lets hope they overcome the problems and come out with a good bird!
