Its official - new satellites need pizzas



I was struck by the similarity of these two pictures presently available on
the web.

The first one shows the AMSAT Oscar Echo (AO51) team at the end of a hectic
day assembling the satellite before launch earlier this year

This one has just appeared on the ESA SSETI Express website. This was taken
after part of the team had finished a hectic day working on the structure in
the cleanroom

Hopefully SSETI Express will be as good a signal on 2.4GHz as AO51 is proving
to be.

cheers
