Do you think that if we asked real, real, nicely they'd go boost AO-51 for
us while they're up there? :-)
Just kidding - I know the reasons why this could never realistically be
done. But it does give me a great deal of appreciation for how reliable a
satellite can be when someone else is doing the stationkeeping work for us
who has resources beyond what we could ever imagine.
