I read the Gazette article “Satellite hits Atlantic – but what about next one?” (Nov. 12, page A4) with interest.

Also, I turned on the TV one night and saw part of a program about a floating mound of thousands of tons of debris in or on the ocean floor – moving around? Why haven't we heard more about that?
