  • Next message: Walter Nissen: "When does the orbiter significantly change its orbit?"

    According to the JSC elsets, STS will eventually go into a lower orbit
    than SimpleSat.  This is what I'm now seeing from this array of elsets.
    
    (To follow this, look at the REVS column, the MMs and the drag factors.)
    
    Cheers.
