Subject: [amsat-bb] Another brilliant idea!
I understand that the AmSat BB is 99% serious business. I think it's time to
lighten the mood a bit.
I'm going to (try to) fund a new project. I want to place a satellite with a
full-sized 160m beam into orbit. I want this thing to be "highly polished"
or plated in Chrome. (It will put the Russian "space mirror" to shame), and
be visible during daylight hours.
I think the flares will catch the interest of people, and draw them into
this insane hobby.
How's that for a dumb idea?
(I'll shut up now...)
