    Hi All -- and with apologies for being slightly off the reservation
    regarding posting rules. This is good news -- especially considering that
    the Air Force may in the future restrict orbital data more tightly than they
    do now. The international community needs to build multinational or at least
    independent space surveillance capabilities in the future, not just for
    debris monitoring/collision avoidance but also for possible arms control
    purposes as more countries weigh the option of weapons in space. That's also
    why groups like SeeSat are important! 
    
    Best,

    I wouldn't call it a spy sat, it's not like a lacrosse are other type. Just
    my option.

    But at least it will help to track all the stuff in orbit.
