    On 04 Feb 2010 Chinese satellite Yaogan 1 (29092) made a small orbit trim 
    and inexpectedly spawned three newly catalogued debris, 36363 through 36365
    with pretty high velocities of separation. A propulsion failure may be
    suspected. It is interesting to compare 29092 with 32289 (Yaogan 3) which
    should be of the same type.
