    A new tether satellite will be launched sometime this year. I been waiting 
    for this satellite for over a year. It keeps being delayed because of 
    various reasons. It might be launched in Nov, along with a gps satellite.
    On the following site
    It says the following
    ProSEDS will deploy from a Delta-II second stage a 5 km (2.7 nmi) long, 
    ultra-thin bare-wire tether connected with a 10 km (5.4 nmi) long 
    non-conducting tether made of Kevlar and Spectra.
    It will use that spectra material, the stufff used in tips.
    It isn't planned to stay in orbit for to long of a period.
