    Non-electronic use of GPS! [was] Taffrail log and an alternative

    George, your comments about GPS simply hit me the right way this morning.
    
    Perhaps if we (well, US taxpayers at least) were to suggest to our DoD that 
    they make the GPS satellites larger and shinier, or tether large reflectors 
    to them, then we could use the GPS satellites themselves as heavenly bodies 
    that moved at great speed, presenting the opportunity to take sights directly 
    off the GPS satellites, allowing them to be used for manual celestial 
    navigation!
    
    Sounds like a classic raison d'etre for a new goverment program, to launch a 
    new generation of satellites that would have "optical fialure mode redundancy 
    support" added to them.
