CNES have managed to image the faulty Envisat bird using a second one called Pleiadies

Envisat ceased transmitting on April 8th, although its currently believed she is undamaged just not transmitting for some reason.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Envisat only has one wing - odd though it looks.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Twice, when twats on the road have written off a vehicle of mine, I've bought back the carcass at a nice discounted rate.
