COSPAR ID: Stands for ‘Committee on Space Research Identifier’. It is an international number assigned to man-made objects launched in space. It consists of the launch year, a three-digit incrementing launch number of that year and a letter code representing one object of the mission. Only successful launches are given a COSPAR ID.

name: Official name of the object. In the case of small objects, their type names are used. A ‘plus’ sign is used when several objects are still fixed together. Information in brackets are either engine names, serials or reference.

type: Object type. In the case of small objects, it is identical to its name.

mission: Official name of the mission with alternate known mission names in brackets.

quantity: Number of objects identified. A question mark is used if no information is available and ‘scattered’ if the object was destroyed (crash, impact, explosion).

status: Last known condition of the object.

location (Apollo tables only): Last known location of the object in respect to the Lunar Module.

date/epoch (UT): Date of the last known condition of the object, given in Universal Time.
