    Hi Markus,
    I either got that off CNN or a newspaper article sometime in the 
    last two days-think yesterday. Since I'm an older Canadian I 
    remember converting the number from kilos to pounds. Came out 7 
    or to be a bit more precise, 6.66 pounds.
    I'll try and find it.
    NASA was guesstimating its weight in any event.
    
    best,
    
    Don
