    Ken Prentice asked:  "Anyone know if warnings are put

    like a large, controlled reentry, would a NOTAM be
    issued.  Mir at the end of February will probably
    be such an instance.
    They don't for any others because there's no way
    to accurately predict the reentry location and
    disseminate that information fast enough to permit
    mariners to "clear the area".  In most cases, reentry
    locations aren't determined until after the fact.
