So go to one or the other post and delete the extra one. You can do it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif That site looks like a school project any clue if it is?

I think I saw the original at the new Udvar-Hazy Center of the National Air & Space Museum. To a lot of people, it looked like someone had forgotten to remove the protective clear plastic wrapping at first. The site is a NASA educational site, aimed at future engineers and sci-fi writers.

i think they crashed that thing a while ago.

bummer too, as they had some of the most efficent solar cells ever developed on the thing, and that means they were MEGA-expensive.

all this from memory from a few years ago, so it could be all wrong for all i know http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
