I saw this posted somewhere else, but will use it here: "A country only has three friends, its army, navy and air force." Every country is out for itself. America is just more visible about it. My question is still valid though, if NASA calculated it won't hit the US, how hard is it to finish the calculation and a sentence that says, "NASA has calculated its satellite will not land in the US but instead will hit Sudan."

I dont see why a British newspaper (/www.dailymail.co.uk) has a title like "we are safe" when we only know that it wont hit the US!

Should be USA is safe , rest of the World in danger!

I also find it hard to believe that NASA dont know exactly where its going to land.

Tell you right now, if it lands in Scotland it will be scrapped, sold within the hour, or will end up at Sundays car boot sale as a new type of sky arial or a new kind of rubbish bin....

From what I've read in UK newspapers, I believe it!

I'd also like to know how NASA knows this satellite is breaking up into two dozen pieces, it's not hitting the US, but they don't know where it will land. This is part of their job, tracking space debris and reentry into Earth - why are they failing here?

How rude we are safe,it will not hit America?!?! America is not the world,there are a few more continents around the globe,and tbh it would be a bigger catastrophe if this would hit a city in asia,or europe for that matter.
That headline is hardly America's fault. Look at the rag that the story is printed in:

Blame the Brits this time!

As ButcherGuy pointed out and I did earlier in the thread - not my headline. It's a British paper, The Daily Mail. I wish no ill will on anyone, and besides odds are it hits the water.

Don't get upset.. You just have to remember most of us live on Earth, and most American's live in America. It's not their fault, they are indoctrinated at a very young age to be loyal to country first. Try and show some compassion for them. Then maybe they'll have some compassion for the rest of us.

Maybe i just spend too much time on ATS... Everyone knows that the video posted is not of UARS falling right?..This video was posted on ATS the other day by an amatuer atronomer, who was simply showing that he could see it with his telescope. Just an FYI

im sure Never A Straight Answer has a pretty good idea where alot of the debris will go, maybe not all of it. and.....see how self important the u.s. is..as long as it doesnt hit the u.s. there is nothing to worry about.

that said, im sure it will be highly photgraphed once it actually enters the the atmosphere and begins to smoke and burn..should be a good show..i'm gunna go get some popcorn

That video is from renowned astrophotogapher Thierry Legault where he says that yes, he filmed UARS and this is the video of it.

Ah, the Daily Mail. One of the most poisonous British newspapers. A series of opinion pieces drenched with seething resentment passed off as journalism


There's really nothing much to worry about. The thing is much smaller than Skylab, and that didn't hit anybody. I hope it puts on a good show though.

Not exactly sure what your point with that reply was OP... i was just clarifying the headline of this trash article you decided to make a post about. I already knew the information you so kindly decided to reiterate

Op? Kinda a low blow to the rest of the world. You just slammed everyone but the US.
"Yippie! Wee! We're SAFE!' Hooray!"

At least show that you undersatnd that ATS is a WORLDWIDE Forum with a lot of great members. You couldve said "The US is safe! Wee! Hooray!" Phffffffllllp! To all the rest of you!'

Oh...you did say that.....

Personally...I hope it doesnt affect any of our worldwide contributors at ATS. You should as well. Oh, wait. Youre in America....I forgot. Thas all that matters. Sorry

well NOT EVERYONE ON ATS is on American soil

and USA is not the center of the world lol

finally got to see the real time tracker,

www.n2yo.com...

it actually says altitude still at 170km (down from 200km 2 days ago)

so its a very slowwww descent so far based on the tracker

speaking of which WHY ISNT NASA PROVIDING TRACKING ON ITS OWN SITE??

I know I know! Jeez. Everyone makes ATS a great place to be, and I suffer exactly zero illusions about America being the center of world. But, I could have picked a better headline to re-post. Fair enough.

Thanks for that link... it is slow for sure. And no clue, this is NASA equipment so they could have at least taken responsibility for it by putting a tracker on their site.
