    I assume someone kindly deleted this thoughtless response.

    The link refers to a sensible thread among mathematicians
    about the recent collision between satellites.
    The point I was making was that most of the debris would collide with the earth,
    since the collision was only 400 miles above the earth's surface.

    Dave, when I first opened your link, blank windows started popping-up so fast that I had to shut-down my computer. So, I thought the link was some type of joke.
    Anyway, I discovered that the problem was on my end, so I deleted my post.

    My apologizes.

    Have you managed to read the link now?
    I thought the subject was both topical and suited to this forum.
