Maybe to be a little clearer:

I was looking more at the process that is going on. Does fuel have to be 
from a booster at orbit - if not would that cause an explosion at 
re-entry?  Why not leave it in?
I guess if I had excess fuel at 22,000 I might want to use it for 
something. :-)
The picture seems to be one exposure at 40 min - how long does it take 
to dump fuel?

Just thought it gave some insight as to what happens as a satellite 
reaches orbit.
