    I guess i always assumed that all corporate sattelites, like phone, radio, and television, were all put up there by NASA... but with how many of them there are, that is an awful lot of sattellites for NASA to fund launches for. Do these companies put them up their themselves, via their own rockets, or do they just give NASA cash to do it for them?

    been wondering about this for a long time, and you really never hear about it that often. anyone have any answers, because i feel kind of stupid not knowing.... :D

    thanks,
