I doubt it - The atmosphere model of Earth isn't exactly what we currently have at Earth (depends on solar cycle), also the drag model of the vessel has a very high impact on the landing site.



Also I am hiding the debris in my basement.

Can I have some links to those debris reports?

I'm North of Okotoks, but it's still in my neck of the woods.
