    1993-015B (#22564)Centaur R/B
    
    SpaceCom's FINAL REPORT - prepared January 6, 05:34 UTC - shows the on decay
    on               January 6, 05:13 UTC +/- 01 hour (09.9N, 214.7E)
    on a southbound pass over the Pacific.
    
    MPM delivers with the ELSETs 00005.882... - 00006.126... the decay on
                     January 6, 05:14:30 UTC +/- 19 minutes (07.2N, 220.1E)
    on the same pass also over Pacific.
    My preceding predictions showed permanently an earlier decay. I found the
    error source: an underestimate of the Centaur's empty weight....
