2 All debris objects start off more or less in the same orbit as the parent object, but diverge over time. In this visualization, each white line represents the orbit of a debris fragment from Fengyun 1-C. Some develop increasingly eccentric orbits, which can also be seen in the Gabbard diagram above (NASA) Indirect data also includes the documentary, archival and oral history evidence for how spacecraft were manufactured, the materials they were made from, their 36 A. g. fabric, function and size) and their individual h­ istories.

The spacecraft is registered with the United Nations as Globus 1. In February 2010, Raduga-1-7 started to drift. Station-keeping maneuvers were performed, but in February 2011, the satellite appeared to have failed and was drifting westwards. In early March 2011, a South Korean and two Japanese satellites were forced to undertake evasive maneuvers to avoid possible collisions (Zak 2013; see also Lee et al. 2012). Because of its military nature, there is limited information about this satellite.
