Here's the latest update from my KSP crew. The rate of deceleration has slowed significantly, from about .1 m/s, to about .025 m/s, due to the distance. Theoretically, if the physics have been executed properly they will eventually slow down, but if the rate of change keeps going down, it may take hours for them to finally slow, and then start ever so gently being pulled back into Kearth orbit.

EDIT: Current mission time T+3h. Bill and Bob have spent almost that entire period in perpetual panic.
