Interesting stuff.Footprints should be fairly similar. Switching date is currently unknown - it will depend on how well the tow back down to geostationary orbit goes. Extensive testing will have to take place to prove the combined MEV1/I901 stack is structually stable before any movement can be contemplated.
Remember this is a completely new concept so a lot of investigative work will be going on in the background to validate the concept.
Why is the move down to geostationary harder to achieve than a move up?
Also, is the fuel the main limiting factor in a satellite's life? Can the 901 satellite expect to largely function as well as when launched even when 24 years old?
