    Hi All,
    I'm trying to ascertain the mass of the used 2nd stage Japanese H2A from the march 2003 launch (IGS) - due for re-entry within a month. At most it is 3.1 tonnes (dry), but that may include fairing and part of the cylinder that does not remain with the 2nd stage, and also weight that is shed during passivation. Its size is roughly 9m long x 4m diameter.  Does anyone know of a source of better info?
