    I have been doing some research on passive balloon
    satellites.So far I have found one that remains in
    orbit since the 1960's.That would be Pageos 1.Does
    anyone know if there are other passive balloon sat.
    still in orbiting?Also does anyone know if Russia
    launch passive balloon satellites in the pass and what
    were if any of the programs names.Last month I did get
    to observe Pageos1 as it made a high pass over my
    location.Does any member of the group know or willing
    to speculate if Pageos 1 is still intact?
