I am curious to know if there was a specific engineering reason why it was not feasible to integrate a screen and selfie arm on the satellite. I am suspicious, but I don't think they intended for this to happen.
Selfie is only one feature of Arkyd.
Maybe the space telescope itself or associated service bandwidth cost more than $1.5M?

Entry level business experience, eh? Any Americans here that fit that description not thinking about applying? Just so I can come kick your asses, just as a matter of principle. ;-)
