Since it's the holidays I thought a little Christmas cheer is in order.

Make that a Satellite Christmas, that is.

(To the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas.  Sung with a smirk)

On the Twelfth Day of Christmas

my true love gave to me:

  Twelve Delta II's departing,

  Eleven Pegasus debris decaying,

  Ten Landsats a-limping,

  Nine Long Marches failing,

  Eight n-dots a-jumping,

  Seven Zenits a-flashing,

  Six Hohmann transfers,

  Five oo-ll-dd PAM Deeee's!

  Four geostat birds,

  Three French SPOTs,

  Two tumbling DOVEs,

  And a Pass by an STS Re-entry.

Happy Holidays!
