    Hi all,
    In the April 2007 issue of the Orbital Debris Quarterly Newsletter, we have
    an explanation for the debris created by the Briz-M stage explosion in
    February not being catalogued yet :
    "Again, due in part to the large number of debris generated by the previous
    four satellite breakups during 11 January  18 February, the process of
    developing orbital
    data for each of the Briz-M debris was delayed. The full extent of the
    breakup should
    be better understood in the coming months."
