One thing that this article does not make clear (and, I admit, this probably sounds like a stupid question to those familiar with the project) is the altitude of the satellite. Does it actually orbit at this lower (than most satellites) altitude that it is studying, or is it above it looking down? Unschool 01:20, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Fixed. It's in a 625 km circular orbit. -Loren 02:58, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
