LSAM/Alair Accent module for re-entry
Just wondering if its possible to reconfugurate an LSAM/Altair accent module to be able to withstand re-entry to earth? What would be used for heat shield upon re-entry?

Not likely, it would have been designed to operate in Lunar-g which means it would be very lightweight and probably not able to support a big new heatshield to surround it.

Not to mention that the exterior is likely quite thin. It would require a total redesign considering it was designed specifically for vacuum conditions, not moving through air or other media.
