heading over ,,well theoretically if nasa has their Algo. right,
and nothing hits it,
on its way through,
the KEYHOLE ORBIT.

quote
"You can think of a KH satellite as a gigantic orbiting digital camera with an incredibly huge lens on it. Optical image reconnaissance satellites use a charge coupled device (CCD) to gather images that make up a digital photograph for transmission back to Earth from an altitude of about 200 miles. Since the satellites are in orbit, they cannot hover over a given area or provide real-time video of a single location. "

Let's look at the bottom line here.
It's not that it's going to hit the Earth, but the fact that NASA, our military, or, dare I say, Space Command can't shoot this satellite down before it hits the Earth.

Doesn't this prove that we're powerless against any meteor or other space rock that is headed to Earth? Maybe this is why we aren't ever told that the Earth just had a fly by until it's already passed. They know there's nothing they can do, so why even mention it.

As a side note, maybe they'll start putting a self-destruct mechanism in these things. If one happens to start plummeting towards Earth, they can just hit a button that will cause it to explode and deteriorate in space.

Oh silly Afterthought.....that's just what they make public. It is my belief, no....my CLEAR understanding they can bend space/time. Teleport if you will. Travel through wormholes. That's being done as we speak.

NASA is a cover-story. A shill. A three-card monte diversion. We are to look at NASA while other programs are doing more stealthier things out there. But I don't want to get attacked on this thread. So I've said enough.

But to answer your question. We (the human race) can absolutely pulverize an asteroid, meteor, moon or planet. Maybe even a star.
They didn't want Tesla's ideas (in the public domain) for a reason. So he skulked off to die a pauper while we use his technology today!
If you're not familiar with, check out the Philadelphia Experiment. I can 100% assure you, it's a true story. I know someone's son. I've seen documentation. But again, that's for another thread.

Yes, you're absolutely right. We all drive around in vehicles everyday that could kill and cause harm. We are all held responsible to keep our hunks of metal up to safety standards and make sure we're operating them safely at all times. If I was parked on a steep hill and didn't have my emergency brake on, then my car rolls down the hill and kills someone, I'd expect to be sued (at least) or be charged with involuntary manslaughter.

If this satellite kills someone and NASA gets sued, I'd expect this to wipe them off the planet. Look at the way Sea World is getting raked over the coals right now for their safety measures and whale logs after the trainer was killed. I just don't think we're getting the whole story here and this is just one small part of a bigger story that is long from being over. Even if it splashes into the ocean, doesn't this thing contain radioactive material?

If you can get on it, its been packed lately.

thanks, and you're right... too busy.

I'm following these, but no altitude data... www.lizard-tail.c... om/isana/tracking/index.html?target=custom&sat_name=UARS&1st=1%2021701U%2091063B%20%20%2011266.50148787%20%20.04834597%20%2011606-4%20%2033766-3%200%2 0%206315&2nd=2%2021701%20056.9410%20265.2237%200005407%20008.0226%20352.1131%2016.40434617109089

Thanks for your input and I'm in full agreement with you. I'm from PA and lived in Portsmouth, VA. I know all about the Philadelphia Experiment. Poor Tesla was used up and discarded.

They probably do have the technology to take care of this satellite or something larger, but why would they reveal their technology for this slight mishap? The timing is just not right and is off script.

Okay, I understand that. But when this hits our atmosphere, it will pick up gravity hence encounter g-force, no?
I'm not sure what one has to do with the other.

Well, it's got gravity already, that's why it's falling. It's just that nothing is pushing back on it, so it doesn't feel the gravity's effects on it's mass (weight). It's why you feel gravity - because the Earth is pushing back on you, preventing you from falling (1 G).

As soon as it starts hitting resistance, it will decelerate and experience G forces (from the air pushing back on it), slowing it down. It's the change in speed that work outside of gravities effects which create these artificial G forces.

So if you were sky diving, and you reach terminal velocity (max speed), even though you are in "free fall", you technically are experiencing just a tiny amount of G forces, not 0 G, not 1 G, but something between, like 0.05 G. Close enough to feel "weightless" though.

Actually this event is nothing new. There are about 8 objects that “crash to earth” each week, this one just gets the press as people like to bash NASA. I laid this all out in another thread about this. But the reality of this satellite and its danger to mankind is not something you need to be worried about. The reality of the situation is every time you drive your car you have a greater chance of injuring a person than this satellite has had over the course of its 20 year mission. That is EVERY time you drive your car. Not each year or even in a month. EVERY time you drive your car there is a greater chance for you to harm a human than this satellite in total over its 20 year life span.

If you are going to bash NASA and call them irresponsible etc. you really need to take a look at your own life and what you do daily that endangers other humans. The problem is that the dangers you do not know always seem far greater than those you are familiar with. I am sure you have all heard Aesop’s fable about the lion, and the fox? The fox at first is terrified of the lion. But he ends up helping him one day and they become friends. His fear lessens to “respect” and over time they do more and more together and soon the respect is replace by “acceptance” soon the fox has no fear of the lion and in fact he even starts to see him a weak and foolish as the lion is not “protecting” his domain in a manner the fox thinks befits the king of the jungle. So the fox now despises the lion and they become enemies and the lion kills the fox as he is scolding him one day. The fox never saw it coming as he had no respect for the lion and his abilities anymore. The moral of this story being “Familiarity breeds contempt” or “You fear that which you do not know.”

Thanks, was posting that when you were doing the same.

If it crashes in Canada,are they going to send a littering bill to NASA?

Sorry don't agree there. NASA is supposed to be the best of the best smartest people in the industry. It's their job, what they do. And to send something sizable up that could cause injury upon crashing back into earth is irresponsible no matter which way you try to twist it. Perhaps a little forethought should have went into how to deal with these objects in a safe manner before sending them up. If I get into my car and my brakes don't work the last thing I would do is drive it anyway. I understand some things can't be prevented but it seems a little more thought should of went into this before hand. My line of thinking is what else does the future have in store for us concerning a lack of planning on NASA's part.
