SuitSat Alerts From SpaceWeather.com

Space Weather News for Jan. 31, 2006

SUITSAT:  On February 3rd, astronauts plan to hurl an old spacesuit 
overboard from the International Space Station.  The disembodied suit, 
nicknamed "SuitSat," will proceed to circle Earth, transmitting a radio 
message which anyone can  hear using a police scanner or a ham radio tuned 
to 145.990 MHz FM.

This strange experiment is a test of a sensible idea--that old spacesuits 
might be transformed into useful satellites. Would you like to listen to 
SuitSat?  Sign up for  Spaceweather PHONE http://spaceweatherphone.com and 
you'll receive alerts when
the suit is about to orbit over your area.
