It has a slightly eliptical orbit.
Its altitude changes in both directions over time.

You need to hush before we are inundated with threads about how the Simpson's predicted this! I can see it now...

I should pick a place
for landing - I will say in the
Atlantic ocean less than
500 miles to the coast line.

its still at 200km altitude (roughly the same altitude over NZ & USA)

and allready over Canada! looks like at this rate of speed will complete another earth orbit??

I say it will land in the Carribean.

Just a random guess.

I noticed that too. Up to 121.2 as I type this.
How can that be? I thought the darn thing had been loosing altitude slowly since 2005 or so. Why would it be gaining now? Besides, if it's dead as a doornail, how can it gain altitude anyway?

Up to 122.56 in the time it took me to type the statements above!

LOL that is awesome. That or he could simply stare at it and make it turn around and go back into space.


For some reason I see this hitting land.

If it was going to hit the ocean I think maybe they would have told us a week ago or so.

Is this the only space debris in recent memory that they somehow don't know where it will land ?
