There would be debris hitting the Earth. It's too big to completely burn I think.



Perhaps, but ~70% of the Earth is empty ocean, and lots of the remainder is relatively empty landmass (huge deserts, unpopulated areas like Siberia, etc.), so just from a statistical perspective the odds of something that survives re-entry hitting a populated area without remote guidance are pretty slim.


Russia called, they said no.


Slim, not impossible.
