Hello everybody,
I did my guess before the end of the "Chicken Little Competition"...
maybe a little too early to catch the correct date of re-entry.

Anyway, I've noticed that your prediction, Mineo, seems to be
optimistic towards the date of re-entry.
I think that, close to that date, sat's height will decrease much
faster than you've predicted
thus the re-entry could be sooner than April 9th.

I will be pleased to share my prediction with anybody is interested.
