It flew at the low altitude from Sep 23 until Sep 30, burning up in the atmosphere on Oct. 1st. Was it worth spending the money for a seven-day mission?

Skylab should have had that claim... or any other dropping out of orbit Satellite....

The description needs to be altered, to something like the "Sustained, Intended Low Altitude Orbit"...

Japan's JAXA space agency sure is making some history, isn't it? The Hayabusa mission to Ryuku and now this.
