Space Debris - Sentinel 1a

I posted last year about a collision with Sentinel 1a - something had struck one of the solar panels. A paper has recently been published from the hardware side - which is interesting to me as a downstream user - hypothesising the causes of the damage. Information on the debris tracked around that time plus info on change in orientation/position of the satellite help them to classify it.

Fascinating!
