NASA says Satellite pieces to hit Earth in a week

U.S. space agency NASA said dead satellite particles to hit earth in a week. They are monitoring 6-ton satellite closely. On Friday they have announced arrival could be possible to Sep. 23, of this month.

As per NASA’s calculations the satellite will break into 26 pieces when it gets close to the Earth. The heaviest piece will be about 350 pounds. NASA will give more details to public on the next week. For now, all continents except Antarctica could be hit by satellite debris.

No one has been hit by dropping location junk in the sometime." No kidding. Considerin­g "space junk" has exclusive been around since the 60s and is growing exponentia­lly, I'd say the past is not a outstanding measurement. The ratio of it touch someone anywhere on the follower are 1 in 3,200" In different line you have a better photo at deed hit by type fling than you do of success your topical pick 5 lottery. What does 1 in 3200 relate when there are 7 billion people on the Planet?

I read NASA saying the window is now between northern Canada and southern South America. Let's hope nobody gets hit. Odds of water landing have shrank dramatical­ly from the original 75% chance.

In the mid 90's, I saw a couple of Russian booster rockets re-enter over Vancouver island, was healthy to see them for some 45 seconds, it was really cold. It was viewable over most of western Washington and BC, and was viewed sations, they all had lots of fill job in.
