    Hi,
    
    Of course I'm not a Sputnik man but I should thank Mr. Molczan for
    the kind words and congratulations. I really look forward to his analysis
    of the object 00001 orbit as well as the memoirs of people like
    Russell Eberst and Michael Waterman whose experience in
    satellite observation goes, I believe, to the days of Sputnik.
    
    Sincerely,
    Igor Lissov
