I mentioned in an earlier email today that I'm doing a Sat 101 lecture for
a ham club.

Just putting the finishing touches on the presentation, and I have a

I'm displaying a picture of AO-13 (my first sat QSO was on that bird) to
contrast it with a picture of the the cubesats of today

The only dimensions I'm finding for AO-13 are 600 x 40 x 200 mm...this
seems awfully small for a 92 Kg (plus another 30Kg for fuel) weight. (23.6
inches x 1.6 inches x 7.8 inches).

Were these dimensions actually in centimeters. and not millimeters?
