Current elsets for these two decayers are:

MSTI 2           1.0  0.0  0.0  8.3 d            226 x 222 km
1 23101U 94028A   98326.87293113  .00996154  22014-5  60391-3 0  9127
2 23101  97.0149 171.6428 0003021 204.1960 155.9195 16.18295482258192
Zarya Proton r                                   291 x 173 km
1 25545U 98067B   98326.87390770  .01653191  11797-4  53689-3 0   271
2 25545  51.6042 154.3077 0089264  96.9181 264.2273 16.15533912   429

These show them running 8 seconds and 40 seconds early against the
evolutions I posted two days ago.

My decay predictions now stand at:

MSTI 2               November 28.8 +-1.2 day

Zarya Proton rocket  November 27.4 +-0.9 day
