I skimmed over that earlier but didn't see the atmosphere reentry. Maybe they aren't publishing that because so much could go wrong? I'd like a timeline but can't find a decent one. LOL!

Yeah, I could only find it saying there is 6 minutes of radio blackout during reentry.

They said the deep re-entry burn will last 11 minutes!

I'm feeling the burn already as I strap a colander to my head and brace for impact!

Are they going to show anything other than Mission Control?

I wish we could see a camera view of the Earth as they descend.

I have no idea! I would imagine the heat shield would block much of that. I would think they had cameras on the recovery ship to film them.

Maybe after they're through the atmospheric burn we may see something. Roughly 15 minutes!
