My only complaint is that it doesn't remember passwords the way AndFTP does (another excellent tool, by the way). I'd like to not have to type in the darned password every time, but oh well, it's a lot better than no ssh.

In ConnectBot you can press 'menu' and 'Manage Pubkeys' where you can generate RSA keys of which you can append the public key to your remote ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

Planned trajectory? I don't think they're going target anything, other then getting a paper plane to enter the earth's atmosphere by itself. The pinktentacle article linked to is quoting Shinji Suzuki saying "We don't know where in the world the plane will land, but it would be nice to send a message to whoever finds it.". Even the best supercomputer can't be programmed to exactly predict the weather, so don't expect these guys to know where their 30 grams of paper will go after being dropped from the ISS.
