I couldn't do it but JPL handed it to us.
Look at the satellites all heading towards the north pole.
What a nightmare of traffic control!
What kind of wastrels would dump a perfectly good booster in the ocean after just one use?

After lurking on this site for years, here is finally my first post. I am currently working on a CubeSat at TU Munich in Germany. The mission is called MOVE-II (Munich Orbital Verification Experiment) and aims to develop a satellite bus for future scientific missions. It will have pretty high communication bandwidth and power generating capabilities for a CubeSat. We recently started a new website with a blog describing the satellite development in weekly updates. I thought that might be interesting to you guys, so I decided to post it here  :)
