Also looks like they are going to change the antenna config, and get rid of
the rocket motor and propellant tank. I find that good because it reduces
weight and complexity, and more space for payloads, And yes nothing is
certain! :)... I'd rather have a HEO than a GEO, At least you can actually
still move your antennas and work diffrent locations rather than a fixed
location. And if they are going to move forward they need to make it so the
batterys run off the panels when they die. Its quite sad its been sitting
in storage for 7 years now, hopefully the goverment will help.
