    I'm wondering what the effect would be if the hundreds of 
    little mirrors of a Starshine satellite were convex.  
    Is EGP/Ajisai still rotating due to its high orbit?  Its 
    diameter is 2.14 meters; mass is 685 kg.  Its apparently 
    rapid rotation and the brightness of its flashes from 
    such a high orbit make me wonder if quite a bit faster 
    rotation would be better for Starshines.
    Happy 2002 to everyone, with clear, dark nights!
