@ROSAT_Reentry: Sat 22 Oct 13:00UT #ROSAT orbit 87.83 minutes 164.8 x 168.9 km Position 48.3N,20.5W alt=180.8km Lit ~Re-entry 11+ hours

it’s difficult to know just where it will drop down; it’s orbiting the Earth at 8 km/sec (5 miles/sec), so if predictions are off by just a couple of minutes that translates to a nearly 1000 km (600 miles) in position! And the models are still uncertain by a few hours.


As it stands, right now as I write this the nominal time of re-entry is sometime on October 23 between 06:00 and 13:00 UT (02:00 – 09:00 Eastern US time). The uncertainty means we still are not sure just where on Earth it will come down.

Actually they were hoping that the EM pulse from the blast would serve as a defense barrier against Russian Missiles, effectively killing their electronic guidance systems. At the time Russians were far ahead with missile technology, and the US lacked the means to launch a counter attack. so setting off a nuke in space was a pretty desperate defensive move.

OR

Hundreds of tiny high-speed projectiles raining down on some area?
tiny projectiles burn up to nothing upon re-entry...
