    The colliding sats Iridium 33 and Cosmos 2251 are still listed by Spacetrack 
    with epochs after the collision. The *new* Iridium 33 (the one with the 
    post-collision elset) is significantly trailing the pre-collision elset while 
    it's the other way around with the Cosmos 2251 elsets. Presumably these are 
    now the largest surviving post-collision pieces?
