To get orbit details of a large number of objects Two line elements (TLE) datasets are often used. However since the only value that's related to mass in the TLEs is the BSTAR drag term how could I find the mass of each orbital object?
I assume I could look it up from launch details (although if this is the solution shouldn't this value be included in the TLEs?) but this seems cumbersome also what about objects that are created from collisions between satellites. Is there a database somewhere that includes the mass of each object?
