(Sorry about the redundant "Subject:" line).

Seen at:

The Iridium system, a constellation of 66
satellites that orbit the globe at 240
feet above terra firma, will be completed
over the course of the next month with
three more launches. The first of these
final launches is scheduled for Wednesday
evening at 6:41 PDT from Kazakhstan.

240 feet?
