I have enhanced the stub, as I heard that the author of Grannies and Time Machines works on the control team for this satellite.--Aodhd 15:37, 20 Feb 2005 (UTC)


The name of this telescope, INTEGRAL, is the name of the spaceship in the 1921 scifi novel We. Is this coincidence or tribute? ~ Riobranden 18:16, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Attitude control[edit]

Article says " Propulsion is by a hydrazine monopropellant system" but should that be for attitude control (eg unwinding the momentum wheels) rather than 'propulsion'? - Rod57 (talk) 18:15, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

Could we list some notable observations[edit]

Most other spacecraft articles have them. Helpful to see their contribution. - Rod57 (talk) 15:33, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
