4. I launched one last week

Mine is a special "low earth orbit" satellite about the size, shape and weight of a bowling ball.

I'm asking everyone, if they see it, give it a push to the west.

9. Interesting the date coincides with the next release of Kerbal Space Program

The Kerbal Space Program is a genius little program - who I have yet to master - I have the habit of building all sorts of big rockets - who blow up at the lunch pad.. A lot of really bowups if tou want it.. Great fun.. I guess it is what the North Koreans do to - some nasty expensive fireworks for sure
