    Just off the phone having spoken to Yves.Feltes
    
    of SES Global in Baikanur.
    
    He assures me that whilst this is a problematic situation , they are in full
    control , and at present trying to lift the orbit,
    
    There is no danger of an uncontrolled re-entry.
    
    More info later as it comes in.
    
    John.
