That be fighting talk........OK, shall we start the re-entry date
For 66 pounds in a relatively small box, I think that Arissat-1 will go on

My rapidly depreciating UK pound is on Launch + 324 days.

wow, 5 years of time and money invensted into Arissat-1 for a 6 month run.
Mean while, all other ISS projects put on hold.
And it missed its lauch date of "fall 2007".
