No....our job ends at spacecraft sep.  No one here deals with rocket body
re-entries.

I am not asking anyone to to my job.  Tracking spent stages is not (or never
has been) NASA/OLS's job.

I asked this simple question to the usually friendly folks on SeeSat,
feeling confident that the more experianced folks out there would help a
real beginner like me.  And I thank you who have been kind enough to simply
answer the question.
