    Here's another good goof by space command:
    27732  1974-104V Ariane 1 deb   906 x 40768 km x 15.6 deg
    1 27732U 74104V   03103.48107786 -.00000023  00000-0  47471-2 0    10
    2 27732  15.5710 244.8958 7323437  32.2226 356.2598  1.93363066 15245
    
    Obviously 1974-104 was Salyut-4, not an Ariane... I assume they mean
    1979-104 (in which case it should be 1979-104S). But the mean motion
    sees a bit high for the 1979-104 objects. I'm sure someone on this
    list can make an argument for which launch this object should really
    be associated with...
