Re-purposing ATVs



Decomposing garbage could provide fuel for a thermoelectric generator as well as gas for station keeping jets.

    I was reading about the Jules Verne docking at the ISS today and all
    of a
    sudden it occurred to me: instead of using the spacecraft fuel to
    de-orbit,
    what if it was placed in a higher orbit, and there was a ham package on
    board?
