Update #13


Yeah, I saw that.
Its basically what they've said for the last few hours, but now they've changed the wording to past tense.

I'm really disappointed. I was expecting them to get more and more refined down to a time window of a few minutes... but it didnt happen.

Actually, it was pretty much as expected.

Normal procedure is for TIP (Tracking and Impact Prediction) messages to
be prepared and released to the public (via the Space-Track.org website) at
the following intervals:
T – 4 days, T – 3 days, T – 2 days, T – 1 day, T – 12 hours, T – 6 hours, and T – 2 hours

www.nasa.gov...

Now it's up to STRATCOM to figure out where it went down.

I'm in sudbury canada and I did not see the fireballs because its raining here but I just felt muliple bursts of vibrstions as if s few things just hit the ground, they were quick and at random intervals, definately less than 800km from quebec.

NASA says the agency is working to confirm the re-entry location and time. It will provide an update shortly.

Down maybe?

Aye, the term "updates" has been used lightly. Not sure how re-posting the same text with one or two words changed count as "updates". Well if that non-event is out the way, time for something new...

Whats that meant to mean! I remember incarnated. How did you come to this conclusion and why are you saying this on a thread thats about the UARS satellite?

Its against the usual, and i hope you dont derail this thread.

On another note, if you have proof start another thread and leave this thread as it is thanks.

If we have high tech military equipment why cant we blow this thing up over an ocean? They claim comets pose no threat to us but they cant track a satellite that's right in our own backyard (figuratively speaking)?

I don't know about you guys but I'm taking a giant step back from listening to what nasa says. One giant leap for mankind and two giant leaps backwards.

For clarification, I understand when it hits the atmosphere its trajectory, speed and altitude can change dramatically. I also understand the complex mathmatical algorithms that are used when sending probes to planets and moons around planets. They can figure that stuff out. Why is the atmosphere such a dynamic puzzle to figure out that they can't even narrow it down at all?

Okay, well who said Canada?

I owe you some bragging rights if its true!

Still being tracked here at 163km altitude and rising.

Cloudy here in the UK now. Not possible to see anything up there. Doesn't look like it's going anywhere near us anyway.

Its not really being tracked.
The (and all other) website just runs a mathematical simulation.

Well that mathematical simulation suggests it is still 163km high.

When and where will the chunks hit?

Its daytime in Southern Australia, but no obvious fireballs in the sky.

If it is still up we may get a glimpse of it.

So is it up or has it crashed?

This is getting more confusing the more I follow it...

I am glad I made a pizza!

0458 GMT (12:58 a.m. EDT)
NASA says the agency is working to confirm the re-entry location and time. It will provide an update shortly.
0434 GMT (12:34 a.m. EDT)
"It's possible that UARS is down by now," NASA just said. "We're waiting for confirmation from U.S. Strategic Command."
0430 GMT (12:30 a.m. EDT)
If UARS is still up there, it has passed over North America. We'll post official confirmation of the re-entry when it is announced.


1 hour 30 ago...still no 'shortly' update.



0535 GMT (1:35 a.m. EDT)
Still awaiting official word.


www.spaceflightnow.com...

Put it this way, if it's still up there and flying about, according to the tracking things (which may not be accurate) it'll be visible over Canada in 15 mins or so. If it isn't spotted, I guess we can assume it's down.

NASA have just tweeted...

"We don't know where the f--- #UARS is, stop asking. We're going to bed."

Totally agree.
I can understand the problems in physics trying to estimate when a tumbling satellite in an eccentric orbit may indeed fall to the ground, but not knowing if it still up there is a huge problem for me.

We can track small screws in orbit, and not being told exactly that this thing the size of a bus it is no longer up there , just does not fly. (pun intended)
