Maybe they are reading OUR plans to take this satellite apart like ants ON a honey bun!!

Not 'UARS' to Keep: NASA Warns Against Collecting Falling Satellite's Debris

Finders not keepers
by Robert Z. Pearlman, collectSPACE.com EditorDate: 23 September 2011 Time: 01:28 PM ET
"Because this is a U.S. government satellite, any object that does reach the surface of the Earth, should it be found, is still the property of the United States," said Nick Johnson, chief scientist of NASA's Orbital Debris Program Office at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. "You do not have the luxury of trying to sell it on eBay."

Should the satellite drop debris over the United States, which as of Friday NASA could not entirely discount given UARS's slower than previously predicted descent, then U.S. laws will apply. Any parts found must be surrendered to the government. Pocketing pieces as souvenirs could lead to charges of theft of government property. [6 Biggest Spacecraft to Fall Uncontrolled From Space]

NASA's interest in recovering UARS's parts has more to do with protecting the public than it does a desire to study the fragments, though orbital debris scientists say that the smaller the parts that are found, the more they may be able to better understand what can survive controlled and uncontrolled reentries.

Protecting the public?
THERE LETTING A freaking SATELLITE FALL on our heads!!!!

didn´t see anything passing by :-(

i think this will be a long night...

german news don´t tell anything new about uars, just said that it will fall down this night or early morning with an chance of 0,3% of damage... not where ist could land, no time....nothing

that´s why i entered this site ;-)

nice to meet americans ...by the way *smile*

Welcome from an American. Where will the satelite land? Somewhere on Earth. When will it hit? When impact occurs. What will it do to the price of butter? Nothing unless it destroys a dairy.

I have heard that laws have been put into effect so that the newer satelites must be constructed in such a manner that they will break up and burn up on re-entry. Enjoy the show.

They could of blew it up but they did not want more
space junk added... You would think they could
blow it up with something that would just obliterate it
where no pieces would be left.
Official nasa updates last update same information from this morning.
It is still too early to predict the time and location of re-entry with any certainty, but predictions will become more refined in the next 12 to 18 hours.

So much for up to the minute reports..
I think they forgot millions of people are interested in this.

You do know US law doesnt cover the whole world?

Id like to see NASA try to get me arrested for doing something thats not against the law here.


If it lands in your backyard, you could charge a fee for entering your property. I would put it up in the millions or negotiate a high price with NASA.
They can get their space junk, but they gotta pay to enter lol.

I remember driving in texas in 2000 and saw a spy? satellite fall from the sky like a big green meteor. It deployed 3 orange parachutes ( a bit late) and crash landed next to the interstate. About 15 minutes later a big black helicopter picked it up. This didn't even make the news. I really wonder why this one is making the news. My guess is it showers crap over LA and looks like the B movie Skyline.

Yeah I posted up update #10 too which was from early this morning...There are more updates from ATSers from other reliable sources than NASA!!!

FAA Warns Pilots to Watch for Falling NASA Satellite Debris:




The Federal Aviation Administration issued an alert to pilots today warning flyers to be on the lookout for any signs of a huge NASA satellite expected to fall to Earth tonight (Sept. 23) or early tomorrow. FAA officials released the special notice after NASA refined its estimates for the re-entry time of its Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS), a 20-year-old climate satellite the size of a school bus that will fall from space sometime in the next 18 hours.

Just my personal thoughts I think it's gonna be down around 1.00am....don't know what that means Eastern Daylight Time or whatever but from what people are posting up it seems to be descending more now...as regards where it lands (hope for no casualties) I think the odds are small....

We have to remember also this planet is 75% water.

Nice one!......you could prob make a mint out of the publicity alone...I bet NASA are crapping their pants at the cost of clean up if it hits a major fuel facility etc.....

Well from what I read and saw NASA says there is a 1-3200 odds of getting hit by the satellite With 8 billion people that don't feel very re-assuring to me.
