"MOON DUST" Re-entered Space Debris Documents

Joseph Page II filed this request with the U.S. Department of State of the United States of America.
Est. Completion None


From: Joseph Page II

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Any Department of State (DOS) held documents (i.e. USDAO cables, reports, statistics, telexes) regarding Project "MOON DUST", or man-made objects fallen from space.

The US Defense Attache Office would coordinate with DOS on any MOON DUST related issues, so I believe DOS has more documents than have been released. MOON DUST existed between 1962 to at least 1979.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the (global) public interest, due to Safety-of-Life issues regarding hazardous space debris ("junk") re-entering the atmosphere near populated areas. No in-depth detailed statistical analysis has been performed on space junk re-entry over prolonged periods time due to held records being classified or casually dismissed as "UFO-related reports."

The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
