    News reports are saying that a 1,400 lb. (635 kg) ammonia tank that came off the ISS, tossed out from Expedition 15 on 23-July-2007, is expected to re-enter earth's atmosphere this weekend. NASA estimates that up to 15 pieces will survive re-entry and make it to the ground.
    Does anyone know the catalog number of this object?
