    This means that in just one year we will celebrate the big 50 - half a century 
    of satellites. No doubt that there will be a lot of media activities on that 
    golden anniversary. As visual satellite observations played an important part 
    in the early years of satellite tracking there is a lot that SeeSat-L can 
    offer. Although twelve months seem to be a long time I suggest that we start 
    to think about how we could contribute to those anniversary activities. We 
    can always do individual bits of course but maybe we could also organize a 
    common SeeSal-L platform for the media etc.
    
    Any suggestions?
