A group of scientists and engineers is working on an ambitious project to revive a unique UK satellite - still in orbit after almost 40 years.

I'm glad they're giong to use a old Satellite again after 40 years.

“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.”

It’ll be interesting to see if they can make contact with the machine again. I’ve always lamented the fact that the UK didn’t pursue space exploration more actively given the enormously successful history of technological development the country has. Unfortunately, I think WW2 just took the back out of the country for so many decades after it ended that we simply couldn’t afford it.
