    The debris is a product of an usual procedure at the end
    of the active lifetime of this satellite type: A "soft"
    explosion to reduce the mass. The "complete" spacecraft 
    has a mass of about 6000 kg and at the end of his life  
    there is no possibility for a controlled reentry.....
