Don't usually hear about satellites beyond their life expectancy, served a good long life into old age I suppose.

Lol....maybe the heavy metals will keep it burning 1/10th of a second longer out of its 4 billion+ year life expentancy. And then only if it made it to the core, not burnt up millions of miles out from it. Not much wood on the fire. Now you've gone and renewed my interest in the sun and how it works. Thanks alot Amanda! Been trying to retire my nerd side.  Smiley Tongue
