Keps for RS-18



There are five [unidentified] recently cataloged satellites associated with
Mir.  The first object (catalog # 25533) is a piece associated with the
Progress M-40.  If Sputnik 41 / RS-18 was carried to orbit from Progress
M-40, these could be its Keps.

The remaining pieces may just be debris from Mir emptying the trash.  If the
above Keps don't work, try these:

Those interested in learning which of the above Keps might be RS-18 should
try them in turn.  Use the AMSAT-BB mailing list to communicate which
catalog number if any from the above list (25533 through 25537) works for
RS-18.

Good luck, I'll be watching...
