Metric or English units?
There was a guess it was a 'Stiletto' ICBM test fragment, which would
be consistent with the less-than-seared-and-melted appearances.

Used as a line of sight link between radio towers because it's not affected by atmospherics in the same way MF,HF and VHF can be,but like our domestic satellite dishes it is VERY directional.
Most likely it fell off the back of a lorry (old English saying) and the people named in the article thought a bit of free publicity would be good for them.edit on 22-3-2012 by Imagewerx because: (no reason given)
that would make sense!
Russia is a flokloric country. They probaly heard a pine nut fall in the woods and connected it to the discovery ;p

Cannot be. A parabolic reflector would never have ridges on it, it would scatter the signal. The ridges are re-inforcement to allow the force of a second stage to blast off the first stage and distribute the thrust vector. It is a blast shield.

According to the page: lifenews.ru... ...
Experts suggest that the fragment might be either a part of the fuel tank of a ballistic missile launched in late December or a fragment of the "Meridian" satellite which launch also failed in december.
They're working to identify the fragment, and I guess we'll get an answer soon.
