  • Satellite Tracking

    Well, it is now 6 1/2 years since AF447 went down. At the time, even though Canadian flights were being tracked by satellite, it was considered a consensus that following an airline by satellite was just not going to work. I always wondered if it was about economics. Now, of course, fuel prices make a mockery of that dodge. But I see not the UN is involved. So we'll see, with the many disappearances and other incidents, if it will really happen. Elon Musk wants to litter space with micro-satellites. Technology changes pretty speedily. Perhaps what wasn't feasible in 2009 is now with the passage of time. I will watch with interest.
