The satellite that is coming down contains some form of a hazardous material that the government will not disclose. Unfortunately it cannot be controlled and the location of impact is currently unknown. The government is more afraid of disclosing secret information than exposing civilians to hazardous material.
I suspect that the hazard is in the form of a radioactive substance, like those plutonium batteries or as Pike from the defense research said it could be beryllium used the coating to prevent friction.
I wonder which country might be the lucky one ot receive a few scraps of the satellite.
Maybe they would do what China did, fire a ballistic missle and blow it up.

Theres a few topics spread across the boards on this . It truly is a scary thing that they have no idea where it will fall. We can only hope that something can be done in time :/
