A new sliding mode control of attitude and position of an autonomous satellite within a cluster is presented. Asymptotic stability is proven by Lyapunov's method. The result is unique in that it handles discrete time control and includes potential function guidance in the scheme. This theoretical result has been written down in a second contribution of the paper: the introduction of natural language publications that can be read by humans and agents (machines) as well. As a first example of natural language programming, system English (sEnglish for short) is introduced to the reader as a new programming paradigm, not a natural language interface. The most important feature of sEnglish is that it compiles into MATLAB code unambiguously. sEnglish is suitable to program complex programs, personal assistants and autonomous agents but its main purpose is to be used for passing on knowledge to agents. As such it is a publication for humans as well as for machines. This paper is a call for participation in a community effort to use natural language programming and and sEnglish in our work in academia and companies.
