Since I'm just a novice, can someone answer my questions and/or set me straight. I thought that almost all space debris completely burned up on re-entry. I know that there were public alerts in the case of Spacelab and some others in which case I understood that the objects were too massive to burn up completely. So why is this case different in that these objects landed in Texas somewhat intact instead of burning up? And no public warnings? Jake Rees Burbank, Calif.
