RE-ENTRY FORECAST TIMES CORRECTED at 22:04 CET (1 hr later as expressed in CET – ED.)

Via the GOCE mission operation’s team and the ESOC Space Debris Office:

Contact was made nominally at 20:50 CET at Antarctica’s Troll station. The temperature of the central computer and battery are around 54ºC. Next visibility is expected again over Troll at 22:16 CET.

The new estimation for reentry of GOCE now predicts a time window between 23:30 and 01:30 CET.
