Prediction Ground Track
Yellow Icon – location of object at predicted reentry time
Aerospace had done some preliminary modeling of the Falcon 9 second stage breakup, and had been preparing an estimated debris footprint graphic for publication, when actual debris was located in Grant County, Washington state [1, 2, 3].
The graphics below depict our modeled trajectory for typical elements of breakup debris from an upper stage. This is a generic model that predicts typical debris from such a reentry. Exact details are highly dependent on the exact point of breakup, and the structural details of the reentering object.
