    Hope I am not duplicating anything said in here recently,  I don't think I 
    am.
    
    this may help

    and http://satobs.org/seesat/Jun-1998/0057.html
    
    Bjorn's egrep search provides a useful summary

    Apart from that a web search, which I guess you may have already done, 
    yields very little relevant apart from the following comment:
    
    "In 1975 the satellite broke up into dozens of pieces... numerous decayed 
    but some remain in orbit. They are of special interest for scientist 
    studying solar radiation pressure (SRP)... because on some orbits, the 
    debris actually gain altitude!"
