Hi all & thanks Bernard,
If you follow up the report in view of the costs and other  factors.  One 
of the options for an ATV future was for a use of  recovery of  debris and 
Whilst the cost may be considerably high for such a development, I thought  
that it would be very interesting
and a positive step forward for study of failure and ageing factors of  on 
board equipment etc. (Batteries ??)
Also of course the objective of  clearing up and reducing hazards of  
possible impact or pollution.
Wonder on your thoughts on viewing this aspect as a effective application  
of use of " Space Budgets"
