I believe this subject has in the past been thrashed around. Perhaps for some new members it might be worth "rethrashing". The shuttle seems to have a lot of room and our satellites are fairly small. If I recall they (NASA) does not want any satellite with fuel. On Oct 6, 1990 the Ulysses spacecraft was carried into earth orbit, then with the solid-fuel motors put it in a eliptical solar orbit. That was 17 years ago, and the policy has probably changed.
