STS-99 - Update #1 - Primary reading's done

I thought I had the reading done for STS-99 but then a friend helped me find a really promising looking paper about synthetic aperture radar interferometry, which is what this mission is all about. So I’m going to read that and then get to work on the script.

I think once I get going the script will be on the shorter side, maybe high 20 minutes, since this is a sort of info-dense mission but also sort of straightforward once we get going. It all revolves around one concept that will need to be explained carefully but once that’s done it’s basically the entire flight.
