EXOSAT or Exosat[edit]

I have asked about this a number of times, such as Manual of Style / non-initial acronyms. Unfortunately despite unhelpful responses to most of these it is clear the MOS in it's discussion of acronyms does not include cases of non-initialisms and it is left up to other policies like Common Name. Since EXOSAT and Exosat are both used in sources then it is not wrong for this article to use EXOSAT, certainly MOS doesn't comment on it. ChiZeroOne (talk) 15:52, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

I understand your point; however, EXOSAT does come from "European X-ray Observatory Satellite", which is why I changed the article around. The same has occurred for Solrad. SOLar RADiation satellite program (SOLRAD) has been changed to Solrad per MOS. Marshallsumter (talk) 16:15, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
