    The original finding aid described this as: Description: View from the aft Flight Deck (FD) window of the Department of Defense (DOD) pico-satellite known as Atmospheric Neutral Density Experiment (ANDE) - released from the shuttle payload bay by STS-116 crewmembers. ANDE consists of two micro-satellites which will measure the density and composition of the low Earth orbit (LEO) atmosphere while being tracked from the ground. The data will be used to better predict the movement of objects in orbit.
