SuitSat is now orbiting the Earth

I subscribe to a couple of NASA emails. I enjoy getting updates on what's going on with NASA and with the greater world outside our atmosphere.

This comes from SpaceWeather and is tres cool:
SUITSAT: There's a new satellite orbiting Earth, and it's a weird one. On Friday, Feb. 3rd, at 6:02 pm EST, astronauts threw an old Russian spacesuit overboard from the International Space Station. The disembodied suit, nicknamed SuitSat, is now circling Earth and transmitting a radio message which you can hear using a police scanner or ham radio tuned to 145.990 MHz (FM). Please visit for more information about SuitSat and how to tune into it.
