Orbital Express Launch

Orbital Express launched on March 8, 2007. I did a ton of work on Orbital Express - I've got over ten thousand lines of code flying on that mission. And this isn't just a routine satellite mission either. Here's a quote from the DARPA website:

"The goal of the Orbital Express Space Operations Architecture program is to validate the technical feasibility of robotic, autonomous on-orbit refueling and reconfiguration of satellites to support a broad range of future U.S. national security and commercial space programs."

Is that cool, or what?! w00t w00t!
