They know its size, shape, even that it is hollow. They know its trajectory and where it will collide .... but they don't know what it is.

Could this event be that prophecy coming true?

The prophecy was actually talking about Skylab...which was actually a dwelling place. As opposed to this piece of space trash, which is not, unless very small people dwell in it.

On Friday the 13th?! Probably just the mask of Jason Voorhees.

First I'd heard of the 40 RPM spin rate.
