I often wonder, is it is not possible to configure any of these "non-functioning" satellites to suit our needs? I mean we can do an awfull lot with very little. There are alot of "non-functioning" satellites up there. We are a creative bunch and enjoy the challange.

Subject: [amsat-bb] NASA Kills Ulysses
After 18 years of operation, NASA has switched off Ulysses, the space
probe designed to study the properties of solar wind, the heliosphere
magnetic field, and the solar radio bursts that can greatly affect our
gadgets, telecommunications, and every electronic system here on
planet Earth. It was the first object to see and study our Sun's poles.
