Hello everyone,

My child and yours AO-27 will be five-year-old this coming Friday September 25th.

Traveling at the speed of 7.75 kilometers per second AO-27 had traveled over 122 million kilometers

and had circled the earth over 26,000 times bringing joy to many of us.

I would like to thank all of you who helped me put AO-27 in space.

I would also like to see all of you at Taco (1 p.m.) this coming Saturday for a small birthday party where we can

recall the early days of building our spacecraft.
