    One can find out some things at satellite encyclopedia , like
    looking up the ionospheric missions, I could get some detsils on the
    TIMED satellite like mass.
    Another source is the Encyclopedia Astronautica
    Mike McCants 's website has a file called RCS, which is mike's averaging
    of the reported Radar Cross section for an object reported in the
    Satellite Situation report issued monthly by OIG at Goddaed SFC.
