What, the're building a 285 million dollar project, and they can't afford two sets of hold down bolts :uh:
The satellite was intended to go into polar orbit in 2008 and monitor the climate for up to four years. In addition to weather, vegetation and drought studies, it was to be used for receiving distress signals from mariners and hikers.
Ok, they have four years to fix it, if it took longer than 4 years to build it in the first place, then it is obsolete now 4 years before they even were to get it launched. I'm not a rocket scientist but if a super computer is obsolete in a year’s time then it just seems to fit that in 2008 the technology in the satellite would be outdated. :silly:MSNBC wrote: The satellite was intended to go into polar orbit in 2008 ... Officials said it was too early to determine how its schedule might be affected or whether any of its tasks will have to be changed.
