I made this thread on another forum but I thought I would make it here too.

India is widely known for their open defecation and now they make scatsat-1.  You literally cannot make this stuff up.  Are they sending the payload to Uranus?
Well, they obviously speak Hindi, where Scat may not mean poop in their native language.
Still, English is the International business language, and must be an adopted second language for many of Indians-especially the ones working for their space agency.

Maybe they just overlooked a somewhat obvious naming faux pas. After all, NASA screwed up metric and Standard units of measurement in a Mars observer satellite mission.
