OUT THE DOOR



Hello
There is a lot of traffic and interest in SuitSat.  Why not have a
variety of "quickie disposable" satellites available to just toss "out
the door".  Apparently these have a short life span and deorbit fairly
quickly.  The concept could be used as a testing mechanism for bigger and
better systems.  Also it's a lot of fun.  Every few months they send up a
supply mission to the ISS.  Why couldn't "WE" have a quickie bird ready
to go along.  It might not be bigger than a shoe box and last maybe less
than a month.  Perhaps a mode "A" bird, just to get that old feeling
back!  I do not know if this has been brought up before.  If it's a
retread I missed it the first time.
