Re: OUT THE DOOR



Granted, but that was only 2 satellites, and almost 10 years ago.  I think 
what we have in mind is something on a much more "regular" basis...  maybe 
we could even get the Russians to equip EVERY Progress supply ship with some 
type of amateur payload to be activated when the ship is cut loose to 
re-enter the atmosphere!
