I would like to know if these tanks have any radioactivity. Wouldn't these
tanks have some latent or extra radiation still present after all the years
they were exposed to levels and kinds of radiation higher than they would on

Thanks to everyone who responded, there is a mountain of information
about it! I think it is one of the best pieces of space debris that I
have ever bought! The more I look at it, the more fascinated I am that
it was orbiting overhead most of my lifetime, and now it is in my dining
I see on the space station diagram that there were only 5 of these tanks
aboard. Three are accounted for to my knowledge. WE still have 2 to
recover! As they are titanium, they are likely about the only parts to
survive the spectacular reentry!

Is anyone interested in acquiring this piece?
