This is a perfect example of human ingenuity for the benefit of all.  I'm 
glad that they have been so forthcoming about the technical details around 
the problem... now future satellites, including Amateur satellites, will 
benefit from this experience.
The message? The importance of fault-tolerance cannot be understated!  I 
guess it's not a new message, but still a good one.
