Wow...this gets weirder and weirder...
I can "sense" how a writer or an editor used "Orbiting" to replace
"Orbital"without blinking an eye back in the '80s or '90s...or a
proofreader changing "Orbital" to "Orbiting" back then and thus
changing the acronym in all future literature...
I started this all because I use it as a "trivia question" during my
satellite presentations: "What does the acronym, OSCAR, stand for?"
I do not mean to irritate anyone nor instigate trouble (honest,
Thanks for the feedback!
