SuitSat, one of the strangest satellites                      in the history of the space age, was a retired Russian Orlan spacesuit with a radio transmitter payload mounted on its helmet.
It was ejected from the International Space Station on February 3, 2006. It carried an amateur radio beacon that was activated in the two meter band. Using a simple police scanner or ham radio, you could listen                      to a disembodied spacesuit circling Earth. On September 7, 2006, at 16:00 GMT, Suitsat re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere over the Southern Ocean at 110.4° East latitude and 46.3° South longitude.
