>>>This spacecraft is similar to the Okean design. If you check Europe &
Asia in Space 1993-1994, you can see that the the external surface
construction is very, very complex. If the satellite begins to tumble,
there is no telling how many different objects will at some time be
reflecting light back to the earth.
