SuitSat-1 Now Designated AO-54



SuitSat-1 has been given the official designation AMSAT-OSCAR-54, or AO-54 
see
http://www.southgatearc.org/news/february2006/suitsat_oscar_number.htm

Although it looks like it's now approaching the end of it's life Suitsat has 
generated an amazing amount of publicity for Amateur Radio as a quick Google 
search will show.

It's the educational ascepts that will be it's lasting legacy. Inside the 
Space
Suit were pictures provided by schools from around the world. SuitSat was a
valuable educational tool which was successfully used to increase young 
peoples
knowledge of orbital mechanics.

I look foward to future Suitsats.
