UFO hits NASA satellite in space





Escrito por PATRICK LYNCH

The orbiter took some damage .


In the eternity of space, the chance of a meeting between two free-floating objects would probably not produce odds you'd want to bet on.

But in the ever-more-crowded arena of low-Earth orbit, the area up to about 1,200 miles above the surface, those odds might be improving.

An unknown object apparently collided with a satellite with NASA Langley Research Center connections in November, sending several broken pieces flying into orbit. he satellite was decommissioned in December 2005, but was one of NASA's largest and brightest in low-Earth orbit, and popular among amateur sky watchers. Called UARS, Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, it was launched in 1991 and carried a NASA Langley instrument called HALOE that captured data about the chemistry of the atmosphere.

On Nov. 10, something apparently hit the school bus-sized orbiter. It could have been one of the many pieces in a growing field of "space junk." It could have been a meteoroid. Space debris often leaves pings and dents in satellites and even the space shuttle, and aging satellites decay over time. But a collision that actually creates new pieces of debris is more rare.

fender bender in space...

hmmmmm this is interesting because the chinese tested a sattelite destroyer on one of their decomisioned satellites not so long ago,maybe this is the usa doing such a test,but one so obvious?,hmm maybe someone trying to intimidate the usa?...can only be russians or chinese or maybe even aliens as you say!

Posting the "term" UFO in a UFO forum, that has blatantly nothing to do with extraterrestrial craft is sensationalism at best and trolling at worst. SUREEEE UFO doesn't necessarily mean E.T. but 99.9% of people associate it with that, like it or not.

Oh this is like taking everyone license cause of a few drunk drivers .

So cause (as you say) 99.whatever % of people . Don't understand what U.F.O means we shouldn't look into unexplainable things cause there definatly not e.t in origin ..

Some one loves ignorance ..


Also where is the pictures of this "blatant" Whatever you seem to think it so obviously is ? Can you prove this "things" existance? Can you prove what it WAS?
Please cite your source(s) for debunking this as anything more than unidentified.



Another thing .. 99% of people i know dont know theres a spacestation . Does that mean thats fake too ?

Yeah, the term "UFO" in the topic title should definitely be changed to "Unidentified Flying Object".

they didn't once mention the cause of this to be an ET Ufo in the article, seems rather cut & dry to me..what was the point of posting this in here.
Of course the OP was doin a 'drive by' just to see how many laughable responses this would get & looks like it worked!

Is the term UFO stretching it a bit?

Absolutley not.


Unidentified flying object?


that seems to be exactly what it is in my mind.

Unidentified.

Wouldn't Unidentified Object be enough? One doesn't really "fly" in space.

Spot on! There are no 'UFOs' in space!!

Back on topic!

Earth is encircled by hundreds of thousands of pieces space junk or debris, big and small. This computer generated image depicts orbital debris currently being tracked around the Earth.

So it's no big deal if a piece collides with a satellite! But, needless to say, it would be disastrous if the shuttle or the ISS got hit, considering the velocity differentials involved!

Cheers!

I guess people are addicted to refer "UFO" term as to aliens.
