Re: NASA reconsiders satellite servicing missions

I'm glad this was finally made public.  I just knew Al Gore was going to
announce it first and say it was his idea!

Subject: [amsat-bb] NASA reconsiders satellite servicing missions


One such mission opportunity was immediately apparent, the recently defunct
Amsat-Oscar 40 satellite. According to NASA administrator Sean O'Keefe,
"Repairing Oscar 40 is a challenging and difficult mission that will provide
NASA and all Americans with the renewed confidence and inspiration that are
needed for the ambitious space missions that lie ahead for us."

An all-ham shuttle crew has been selected to fly this important training and
repair mission.
