    Hi
    My brother had some involvement with the former NTSB in crash investigations
    and one thing they did was take various parts up to various altitudes to
    determine terminal velocities so they could determine how to search for
    them. In the case of engine compressor blade parts they were looking for (in
    Nebraska I think) found that they need to look 6 ft underground. Finding
    denser Shuttle parts is going to be difficult.
