tin-foil hat should be enough :lol:
Because if the satellite hits you, Kevlar will not be enough either.

Btw. It went down somewhere in Canada, supposedly.

It's shocking that they still do not know the atmosphere good enough to predict the trajectory of the satellite with enough precision :shock:

Sounds like they can do it about as well as weather forecasts, with error increasing the further you look ahead. Basically totally wrong until the moment it happens, but then you don't need someone to tell you any more.
