Re: FO-29 schedule Jan. 2008



How is the schedule decided?  I notice that all of the time where the 
spacecraft is on, it has just come to Japan.  It does not have sunlight by 
the time it gets here to North America.  Does the control station have to 
turn-on the satellite every orbit?  I understand that the battery has 
failed, so it is my assumption that the satellite must be activated manually 
by a control station after resumption of sunlight.  Is this true?
If that is true, then is there some way that another control station in the 
opposite hemisphere can make the satellite useful over here?  Lastly, is 
there any way that the process can be automated?
Thanks,
