Tracking a missile and predicting the re-entry of a dead satellite are not quite the same thing.
Missiles are easy.

I know right?
It's a joke!

I can kind of understand that it's difficult to predict when it will re-enter, lots of factors, blah blah blah... but once it's fallen and burnt in a fiery ball of burnyness.. do they really have to check with strategic command, and ask if everyone is okay over twitter???

FAIL.


(And does this mean there won't be any footage of it...
)

Yeah.. it seems even though it may be down.. ( it would have hit just shy of Africa) The simulation is still running.. so now you know the spaceflightnow thing was just a simulation based on projected data not live data all this time, or the graphic would have stopped moving.

That sucks. can't trust anybody.

NORAD is who tracks satellites.
I'm not sure they would be able to track a satellite that low over the middle of the Pacific.

infosatellites.com hs it over Africa as well at 97.62 miles. Heavons above seems to be slightly ahead of infosatellites.com but on same path.

We'd never know. Based upon this, they'd be buried in a bunker with their head between their legs without giving a hint of warning. We would be notified by a bright flash about a 1/2 second before our skin melted off our bones. But hey, I'm cool with that....so long as I don't have more than a second to think about it.

Landed in Africa?

I hope no exotic animals were harmed during the falling of this satellite.

This isn't URGENT at all dude. It's a small satellite that won't cause any significant damage.

You're telling me that regular radar couldn't detect 26 fast moving pieces of metal?

It still doesn't fill me with confidence...



Also; ''checking with strategic command'' that's a phone call, all of what... five minutes? lol

I hate to say it, but phage is correct.

But there's radar all over the place... how else do we stop planes from hitting each other?
Call me a berk, but I thought that was the point of radar, to detect objects.. Surely another country could confirm with their radar, if it's not close enough to the ones used in the U.S.?

Well, then. You should call and express your outrage. Better yet write your congressman!
