Hello List,
I think someone should invent the word 'Columbiawrong'!

Why don't someone with the right data make a map
with the groundtrack of Columbia on it,
complete with shaded/colored areas according to probability
of the debris fallout, also taking into account windspeed in
different heights/jetstream..
Then first you have a sensible tool for searching for any possible

Also I wonder, how could this piece in Joshua tree retain the heath
for maybe around 10 hours, since it was found in the afternoon,
while Columbia went over before 6 a.m.?
With all the discussion on hot meteorites on this List, I think
we should have been able to refute that kind of 'proof'?
