In past, I wrote 'Altitude, not attitude'. Today, I read that some people actually use this term in publications 'TAXONOMY AND CLASSIFICATION SCHEME FOR ARTIFICIAL SPACE OBJECTS':
"The attitude state is the characteristic how the attitude of the object is evolving over time, is it actively stabilized, naturally stable, spinning moderately around one axis, spinning in irregular manner."
Interesting word choice. I would probably choose different word. Ha.
The main definition from Google:
"a settled way of thinking or feeling about someone or something, typically one that is reflected in a person's behavior."
is more connected with human behavior rather than non-living object's properties.
