Fedsat Launch (14 December 2002) - False Dawn

After working for 4.5 years, well past its 3 year design lifetime, and doing everything expected of it.. funding ceased. Too successful. Still the most complex and capable microsat ever launched, nearly 20 years later.

 So the next time we launch again, it will likely be in another 10 years. And we will have to start from scratch, again. As we did after WRESAT in the late 60's.

It reminds me of Black Arrow.

That makes the UK the only country to have put something in orbit and then given up the ability.
