"NASA space junk experts have refined the forecast for the anticipated death plunge of a giant satellite, with the U.S. space agency now predicting
the 6 1/2-ton climate probe will plummet to Earth around Sept. 23, a day earlier than previously reported. "
“Re-entry is expected Sept. 23, plus or minus a day. The re-entry of UARS is advancing because of a sharp increase in solar activity since the
beginning of this week,”
how does solar activity make a defunct satellite come down sooner than expected...
and why in the heck can't i touch the charred remains?
if it lands in my yard i sure a heck am going to play with it
as soon as i roast some marshmallows over it of course
