With all the Elenin hype going around, this is another topic that will some how be brought into the Elenin arena for discussion. THIS IS NOT ELENIN RELATED. It's simply a satellite that's tumbling it's way towards Earth.

This is on the front page.....(firehose)

But anyways....chances of getting hit by this is something like 0.000000000000045% if i remember correctly.

Most of the planet is uninhabited....chances are it will fall somewhere where it will not injure or kill anyone

1. Its not URGENT, theres still a few days to go.
2. Theres a whole bunch of threads on this already.
3. The gratuitous use of ELENIN is bound to get you at least a few stars and flags.

It's the ultimate regional squeegee hunt if it comes down over land where people can reasonably get to debris. As others have said, if it looks anything like a container or recognizable component of some kind, I won't touch it with a pole...but if somehow they're off about when and this little puppy hangs on long enough to come down on this side of the planet...I fully intend to hunt for scrap metal or something similar for the ultimate in keepsakes for my son. Please UARS...Missouri is the target to aim for. Southern, if it isn't too much trouble.

Oh...and if NASA knows something about propulsion systems...or other material that they've neglected to mention, NOW would be a dandy time. I am sure I'm among millions of people who are thinking the very same thing while watching those orbit tracks and crossing fingers. It would be really uncool to find out AFTERWARD that 'Oh yeah...there was a little reactor onboard' or 'uhh..we forgot to mention that insanely toxic fuel that wasn't fully drained and covers everything'...

I'm going to wear my my catcher's mask and mitt until this lands....thanks for the heads up.

There is a 1 in 3000 chance that debris will strike you. Every individual on the planet has the same chance. I am predicting that one unlucky soul will perish.

There is a 1 in 22,080,000,000,000 chance that debris will strike you. Every individual on the planet used to have the same chance but now the reentry timing has been revised to exclude people in North America from that list.
People in the other zone now have a higher probability.
The total sum of *anyone at all* being hit is 1 in 3000.
