I see that my detector photo below and initial results have a bad link. I just found how to attach rather than link images, so this one should be more reliable. the Lead sides and bottom are now 35 mm / 1.4" thick, and reduce the overall background by 32%, so anything from above should have been detectable.

File comment: Initial pass of Snap-10A with promising data but proven to be not related.

Raw count summaries for Iridium fragments 34073,34356,34499 and 34498
December and July are being re-processed. These fragments have the highest counts for the available data set, and have been consistently on the top of the list. I will be attempting to produce clear graphics to show the contrasting levels for all fragments. Also, the data used only represents 1/3 of the total available data. the reminder of which has yet to be downloaded and processed.

Here are the graphics for February and March 2017 with the spreadsheet for the 4 hot fragments at the bottom. If you want graphics for the rest, please PM me.

The remaining 60% of Iridium33 Debris data has been processed and a few more hot fragments can be identified:

Here is the chart showing March 2017 additions and updated data as of March 24:

Note the decay dates...something is not right. I tried to calculate the decay dates with bad results. I'm now wondering if the TLE data has been tampered with.

Ok so this is my first post and so am probably doing it wrong. Member for 3 years just never posted. My question is what is happening with ALL of the EPA sites going inactive since March 23, 2017 and the last readings posted were much higher than normal?

The news media have been reporting the shutdown of the EPA and the gov. has ordered them to pull all projects and grants and shut down all data sources to the public. I'm still accessing some privately held data on orbits, but it now seems to have been "contaminated" making it impossible to estimate re-entry dates and locations. There are many more radioactive sources in orbit that will be posted in my next report. It takes days to run the software on nearly 600 Iridium debris fragments to calculate what you see here. The results may indicate big trouble ahead. Or not.
