Satellite #1000

I'm trying to catch up on my satellite backlog (and failing at 100 MPH). I'm still about 2 months behind in just getting the basics with no real details (like what type of satellite it was or what rocket put it up there).

But I have figured out what #1000 is:

December 28, 2011 6:20pm
Name: Tansuo 1 LM2r aka Long March 2C Rocket used for putting Tansuo 1 into orbit
Int'l Designator: 2004-012-C

I was hoping that I would have been more organized and that number 1000 would have been something like the ISS or the X37-B or one of my most often see satellites Resurs 1-4.

However, I wasn't, so it was all kind of random.


Here are the satellites that surrounded #1000:

#999 - ISS (International Space Station)
#1001 - X-37B (OTV 2)
#1002 - Resurs 1-4

I couldn't plan that, but it all kinda worked out that way. I find that to be kind of... cosmic. :-P

Also of note... my next session after the Dec 28th one was Jan 5th 2012, so I just got my #1000 in the year 2011 which was close to my original goal (get #1000 in a year). By getting it on Dec 28 2011, I got it in 1 year 4 months and 1 day (my first logged item was the ISS on Aug 27th 2010).
