"In the history of spaceflight, no known person has ever been harmed by reentering space debris," the Aerospace Corp. stated in January. "Only one person has ever been recorded as being hit by a piece of space debris and, fortunately, she was not injured."

Really? According to this documentary I watched once, she was blown to pieces.

Your cat and I use the correct ISO8601 format, but their dates are DD/MM/YYYY. The decay data is from early March.

A prediction accurate enough to tell any meaningfully small group of people to be on the lookout won't come until about 4-5 revs (~6 hours) before terminal reentry.

That's just how it goes when the inputs to your analysis have error bars as big as these.

Ivo Shandor: ...the correct ISO8601 format...


I'm reminded of a joke I first heard from a colleague of mine, a member of the ITU-R advisory group, "The best thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from."
