ELEnin stands for Extinction Level Event Nibiru. Course the only way you'd know that is if you actaully read the ELEnin threads instead of ignoring them and thinking "oh its just another comet that will do nothing"

Someone who really knows the level of danger a piece of this represents, please explain this quote from the article for me:
"If there is something you think may be a piece of UARS, do not touch it," NASA said. "Contact a local law-enforcement official for assistance."
Is there a real and legitimate reason that ought to concern people (Or stop everyone from souvenir hunting)? For very obvious reasons, the thought of keeping something from the Shuttle break-up would never cross my mind, but if this comes down over the United States, why wouldn't I want to carefully pack a piece of this away as the ultimate souvenir? This kind of warning first strikes me as the Gov't simply wanting control of their debris for the sake of control...or is there something about this satellite or it's power system we ought to know?edit on 7-9-2011 by Wrabbit2000 because: (no reason given)

Funny how all these things are gonna happen in Sept. and Oct. Elenin(a one time event,not an orbitol event), sattlelite crashes, that asteroid between us and the moon,
the ISS possible evac.
Add the NASA warning to there "family" a few months ago,
and the Hoppi prophecies
All that being said, I'm looking forward to the Nov. 5th date. At least I think there will be something we can all see as we pass through the tail of Elenin.
There should be some spectacular meteor showers as it looks like Elenin is on or very close to the Orbitol plane of the majority of planets in our Solar System.
That is as long as it didn't break up
to go into indavidual gravity breaking orbits around the sun, to arrive in multiple geosync orbits around Earth .

The source article said that it was put into a disposal orbit. I was under the impression that when a satellite is decommissioned it was suppose to have its thrusters activated and pushed out of orbit. Thus another satellite could then be placed into the spot that the decommissioned one had. So my question is why was this one put in a disposal orbit?

Wow!! That's alot of stuff coming down, hopefully it won't hurt anyone. It is interesting that it is falling at the end of September when we have all this Elenin nonsense going on!
Yes, add that to the Elenin synchronicity list. I've lost count.
Otherwise, all of the solar M & X class flares of late.... There's always mention of 'can interfere with satellites.' So, just wondering if this one got scrambled, and 'zapped' out of orbit from a direct hit due to a hole in the ozone perhaps. Is that even possible? It said 'upper atmosphere.' Just throwing it out there for consideration.
As I am an orbital dynamics engineer for a leading civilian satellite company.

Wonder if the planned visit to Denver with no set agenda will be pushed ahead??
