Description:This model represents an accurate depiction of the longest-lived satellite in history. The satellite was still operating as of August, 2007, and has been working off and on since 1974. This package uses a very small footprint at 34k, and the zip file contains everything you need to display the model in Celestia.

NOTE: To install this add-on, simply extract the zip file to your Celestia\extras directory.

Just add the line:
Beginning "1974 11 15"
in the .ssc file. And the satellite won't appear before!
Great job, in any case.

Just FYI, ALL files necessary for this satellite are included in the zip file. Still an exceptional model.
