NASA: "There probably is no hazardous material left in the falling pieces, but people should not touch any fallen satellite parts just in case.

Be careful people..

Of course we had the Columbia's pieces fall all over us. Some of those pieces also belonged to human beings, the astronauts..

RIP

PS. There was much hazardous material too.

Do you blame the space debris since the beginning of NASA on budget cuts??
