I had no idea there was a "Nature and Astronomy" section on here. Excellent!! I honestly did not know the term for the point where an object is closest to what it's orbiting around in an elliptical orbit is called a perigee and I have a BS in physics, so thanks for that! Is that term only used when referring to things elliptically revolving around earth? Also, on a side note, I was looking at some books I was interested in reading ,and I may read "Counterspell: The Second Law". Looks interesting.There are apparently about a dozen "live stream" tracking channels of this on Youtube. There is a lot of inconsistent info. Apparently, since the orbit is elliptical with respect to Earth's atmosphere, each approach to the low point (perigee) is an opportunity for it to get terminally snagged, and each perigee when that does not occur seems to reset the projected re-entry time.
Here are two more rabbit hole links.
I told my brother a week ago that it would land in the pasture in front of my porch. (But I chose Soup and Sandwich for the Kentucky Derby. I'm not so good at this stuff.)
Miley Cyrus was on that episode too? I guess there will be no more chad skits...I wonder if that was pete's send off (I didn't watch the episode)
