Description : Cosmos 316 left some debris in its intermediate orbit, and its carrier rocket and payload maneuvered to an extremely eccentric orbit. It decayed naturally, but major portions of the spacecraft fell in the American midwest in Oklahoma, Kansas, and Texas. Some of these pieces were several feet in maximum dimension, weighed scores of pounds, and were of very great thickness. In accordance with international agreements that call for the mutual return of recovered objects, the pieces were offered to the Soviet Union but not accepted.
