My comment was an accurate "summary" of what was posted on the Roscosmos PAO site. But it certainly doesn;t necessary reflect reality.

I can very easily see how the information could have been misinterpreted ... or mis-stated.

I mean, the "batteries" aren't going to give out in two months' time. Can't you see someone stating in a media session, "We're afraid the satellite will decay in two months ... " and that being written up as, "The batteries aren't going to last."

The past 72 hours have shown to me that the best "media filtering" - being defined as "receiving info and validating it" is being produced by AMSAT-NA and the ARISSat-1 team, and reflected on their respective Web sites.

Just Clint's opinion, of course.
