    27 February 2006 - NASA - New satellite test idea called SuitSat
   NASA announced on January 26, 2006, that one of the strangest satellites
   in the history of the space age is about to go into orbit. Launch date
   was Feb 3rd. That's when astronauts onboard the International Space
   Station (ISS) will hurl an empty spacesuit overboard. The spacesuit is
   the satellite -- "SuitSat" for short. "SuitSat is a Russian brainstorm,"
   explains Frank Bauer of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. "Some of our
   Russian partners in the ISS program, mainly a group led by Sergey Samburov,
   had an idea: Maybe we can turn old spacesuits into useful satellites."
   SuitSat is a first test of that idea. SuitSat can be heard by anyone on
   the ground. "All you need is an antenna (the bigger the better) and a
   radio receiver that you can tune to 145.990 MHz FM," says Bauer. "A
   police band scanner or a hand-talkie ham radio would work just fine."
