How long will the ARISSat-1 satellite be close to the ISS. Will the pass times always be the same ?
Heard female voice with deep fading. Not a high pass, so it was difficult copy. I'll try for the secret word on the next pass, which should be higher!
It is unfortunate the way it was handled the micro satellite, we can say that being born died, now the only thing left is to be foolish in front of a TV screen just to see and hear can not interact with the satellite. Under which criterion chose these people to be up there is incredible but speaks very poorly of them.
Now we has to wait until next February! not credible!
