Hmm the article says it burned up on reentry into earths atmosphere.  I wonder where the shards landed?

Did it hit anything,  the article is short on info unless I missed that. 

I tried looking when I heard but no footage or knowledge from what I can tell... Not enough to identify it on the ground anyway!

:gsbrnint: I don't believe the carbon fiber frame would create a fireball. Not sure what the panels were made of. Reflective polymer?
