INTERBALL Tail Probe flight longterm situation analysis

The longterm orbit evolution and ballistic lifetime

The history of the perigee geocentric distance evolution under solar - moony perturbations is shown on the picture (click icon to make larg picture). As a result of this evolution the Tail probe will stop his ballistic life in the middle October 2000.
The evolution of the orbit position corresponding to the tail phase of different years are shown on the picture (click icon to make larg picture).
