Hi Pete,

So, you're probably not intending to have this be a trick question...  The oldest one that's still working is Oscar-7.  The oldest one that's still in orbit is - hmmm, not sure.  I know the very first ones, Oscar-1, et al, as well as many many more modern ones stopped working long ago, but how many of them have re-entered?  

Then there's the Moon (Oscar-zero)...
