That orbital track would be good IF the Earth didn’t rotate.
The UARS track also has FIVE instances where it will pas over the US. All of them occur early tomorrow morning. Since NASA says it’s coming down in the afternoon (they THINK), the orbital tracks will be mostly over the Pacific...BUT a couple of the afternoon tracks also take them over densely-populated parts of Europe.
I’d be willing to be some folks at NASA are finding religion right about now, PRAYING the thing doesn’t fall in Europe.
Here’s to a safe splashdown before Saturday evening worse case. We’re flying to Europe and would be crossing a flight path enroute.
That would make a heck of a video from an airliner window,, debris flying by... but I don’t want to be the one making it and we don’t need any new ruins in Europe, that would be a mess.
