    To day I got the following question:
    
    What are typical masses of artificial satellites?
    
    The questioner did not specify his definition of artificial satellite. He
    might mean the payloads as many laymen do not know that there is a lot of
    debris up there.
    
    I do not know the answer. May be some one in our SeeSat-community knows it
    or knows where to look further. Any answer or direction to an answer is
    welcome.
    
    Regards from a rainy Belgium
