    My feeling are there is more to this decaying sat,than
    meets the eye of media at this time.Over the years
    many US satellites have decayed back to earth with
    propellants on board that were dangerous.
    In the way the U.S. government is acting in this
    matter and the reports of no solar panels being
    observed.I am getting the gut feeling that this
    satellite may have been powered by a Snap type power
    unit.If so that could be the big worry over this sat.
    debris coming down over a land mass.If they take a
    shot at shooting it down I would put money on that I
    am right.Remember,no solar panels would make this
    satellite harder to be seen which is good thing if you
    put a spy satellite into orbit. The other downside of
    this is if a Snap type unit is on board, is that U.S.
    did not tell others on the planet before putting such
    a satellite into orbit.Major political fall out around
    the world.Just thinking!I thought I smelled rubber
