    The STSS Demo satellites continue to separate, and their separation is now
    well beyond the expected 35 deg of central angle. I doubt there is a problem
    with either spacecraft; more likely, the 35 deg value is based on out-dated,
    garbled or misunderstood information; or the limits of communications
    cross-links are being  tested.
