Challenging proposal but what about the helmet switch box and antenna? Is the 
reentry forces will melt down or dismantle this fragile setup first even before 
the inside temp can rise?

As for the temperature from 12C to 15C its not so cold near room temperature 

Remain to know where this will happen. Over the oceans 2/3 of the world! but 
anything is possible even the impossible.

Just recently looking  through the fence at Goddard to see the club antennas 
(site was close re: sunday)... Hope it was the right site it was on the other 
side of the road facing the complex.
