    Yesterday , ESA TV ( satellite ) broadcast an excellent short video about 
    space debris......and included brief glimpses of ESA radar pics of Mir and 
    one of the shuttle fleet

    Summary....
    Most telescopes on Earth spend their time unveiling the mysteries of the 
    Universe. But some like the European Space Agency Teide observatory on the 
    Canary Islands are used to search, track, identify and catalogue less 
    glorious aspects of space exploration f.i. Space Debris.
    
    The script is online as a PDF file under 
    http://television.esa.int/photos/EbS55340.pdf
    
    A WMV preview clip is online under 
    http://esatv-movies.e-vision.nl/videos/mphi/SPACE_DEBRIS_dv_17-01-08_wmphigh.wmv
    
    
    ....
    
    Unfortunately the archive version is not yet in the ESA files , but should 
    be within a week or two and is worth watching out for.
