    I'm having trouble modelling this piece in Code.
    It appears to be at an altitude of 4.4 million km at a speed of  
    400,000+ km per second.
    Is this actually true?  www.n2y0.com confirms my figures, Heavens  
    above shows it as decayed while space track is still releasing TLE's  
    for it.
    I'm hoping this isn't a bug in the SGP algorithms.
