It hasn't. The OP got a little over enthusiastic.
It won't until Friday afternoon (eastern time).

The picture of that satellite from that tracker looks like a giant wasp...I'm just trying to spread humor nothing harsh.

I think it will land somewhere in the south pacific

The very fact that some of this satellite will survive reentry is damning evidence contrary to the 'hollow satellite' conspiracy theorists. When you think about it, meteorites are damning evidence to hollow earth theorists.

Being as this is ATS - I'll go out on a limb and predict that it is not going to hit at all.

Denver, definitely Denver. If it is falling this Friday then that puts it on the same date as this: www.abovetopsecret.com...

Coincidence? I think not.

Ah, c'mon guys, for crying out loud, why the heck everything have to happen in America? Give the rest of the world a chance, would ya? We, the Others, also want some satellite in our backyard!
...please...?

How about... Albania? Or even better, Greece? (well at least it might distract them from the "damn EU don't want to give us more money for nothing!" thing...)

This is crazy...

Not Sex in the City 2, the series was retarded, the movie was retarded, the sequel was simply tasteless prostitution. Every time the little woman even mentions that tripe I lose brain cells. They say romantic comedies are out there to make men effeminate and to give them inferiority complexes, but Sex in the city I think is an insult, you'd need a lobotomy just to stand it.


I know it's really off topic but she hated it. The dainty little thing let out a couple of incredulous snorts that would have frightened the mightiest of beasts (also me). I was slowly nodding off into a wonderful beer induced coma when I woke with a start.

*Snort* 'are you f-ing kidding me?' she bellowed. I awoke with a start to find that gorgeous girl of mine slapping her leg and guffawing.

Also back in the day when I had my viscous (that is correct spelling he melted off the couch) pit bull I remember the poor pup running to his daddy, terrified of the crazy nerd snort laughing on the couch whenever something funny came on. 105 lbs and louder than a nuke.

UPDATE #7 - As of 1:30 p.m. EDT Sept. 21, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 120 mi by 130 mi (190 km by 205 km). Re-entry is expected sometime during the afternoon of Sept. 23, Eastern Daylight Time. The satellite will not be passing over North America during that time period. It is still too early to predict the time and location of re-entry with any more certainty, but predictions will become more refined in the next 24 to 48 hours.

UPDATE #6 - As of Sept. 21, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 120 mi by 130 mi (195 km by 210 km). Re-entry is expected Sept. 23, United States time. The time reference does not mean that the satellite is expected to re-enter over the United States. It is simply a time reference. Although it is still too early to predict the time and location of re-entry, predictions of the time period are becoming more refined.

UPDATE #6 - As of Sept. 20, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 120 mi by 130 mi (195 km by 210 km). Re-entry is expected Sept. 23, United States time. The time reference does not mean that the satellite is expected to re-enter over the United States. It is simply a time reference. Although it is still too early to predict the time and location of re-entry, predictions of the time period are becoming more refined.

UPDATE #6 - As of Sept. 20, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 127 mi by 140 mi (205 km by 225 km). Re-entry is expected Sept. 23, plus or minus a day. It is still too early to predict the time and location of re-entry. Predictions will become more refined over the next two days.

If you watch one total loop around the earth you will see that UARS reaches its highest altitude at the lowest latitude and its lowest altitude at the highest latitude. Its altitude has decayed a lot since I started watching on Sunday night.

And now it's no longer being tracked.



In case its not clear, all these "tracking" websites people are following are NOT tracking this or any other satellite.
What they do is they take "Two Line Element" orbital data (TLE) from places like NORAD and simply run a calculation on them and deliver the result to your web browser. Exactly the same as if you did the calculation on your home home computer.
Here is an example of a TLE...

MOLNIYA 1-86
1 22671U 93035A 10304.20566066 .00000807 00000-0 31628-3 0 3708
2 22671 62.2806 61.3884 7489727 276.5130 11.4192 2.03412498128206


If the satellite starts to reenter and plummets to earth, the tracking sites you look at wont even notice for many hours.

They dont track. They calculate.



And also, why do people bother putting the word OFFICIAL in thread titles? It just means the posting will be speculative garbage and has no credibility.

I watched the altitude for a while and i think it is loosing the altitude very fast....

30 sec - 1km
60 sec - 2km

so 190 km in less than 2 hours??
