...would have given it a 'square' orbit
Nah, it was sublime, a dodecagon at worst. I see a lot of low-altitude trainers out of Rochester failing to get 'circular'. This thing had to have GPS or similar, it was so accurate. That's what got me interested in it.
Its capabilities in the radio spectrum are um.. a matter of record. My question is: was it testing something optical, that depended on the atmospheric crystal clarity that prevailed on the 26th?
Maybe they got a nice snap of me, I might be famous already... Ooh-er! Suppose I'll be seeing you in the trunk of that black 4x4. Bring some decent mp3s, I'll bring the Smirnoff.
