The 300-lb chunk (Guess what that is?) is expected to land intact.
I wonder why, now, the US Governemnt has announced that any piece hitting the ground is US government property, and they will rapidly collect it?
Yeah, there are some rare metals aboard. Plutonium, irridum ...
If it hits your land, take a photo and get out of dodge. Take your dogs with you - they will likely not survive the impending SWAT response.
No nuclear material on board this one. They're just very concerned you might cut yourself on sharp piece of metal. (Yea, right) They're actually worried you might sell a piece for big bucks on ebay.
from Space.com: "We always tell people not to go pick things up because that is always safe," Johnson said. "You are much more likely to get cut by some sharp edge on a piece there are no hazardous materials [and] there are no radiological materials [aboard]. So it is always best to leave it where it is, notify your local authorities and they will contact us and we will work whatever needs to be worked."
