SatEvo decay list #40  (issued 1997 October 16)

Here is rather long list of SatEvo decay analyses and predictions. 
The "Actual?" decay dates are my estimates based on the final 
available elements. Pegasus debris are included if I predict their 
decay by November 30; other objects are included to December 31. 

This and other recent decay lists are available on the WWW via 
my SatEvo page at
               http://www.wingar.demon.co.uk/satevo/
There you can also find current elements (updated every three hours
or so) for all the still-to-decay objects below, plus other objects 
of interest, including Mir, Iridiums (until deployed) and recently
launched/catalogued objects. I have recently added another file, 
iridiums.tle, containing the current elsets for all the Iridiums.
