I know you are in Ky and I can't get any of the trackers to load, are we to worry about this here?

I'm in Kentucky as well and I've been able to get all of the trackers to load... just keep hitting refresh. It took it a few tries when I did it but eventually, I got into all of them.

Not sure if we have to worry about it, but if it comes down within the next hour, I'd say no. After that, don't have a clue, lol.

Just in case anybody needs to know....
So, a humongous satellite falls on your home — who pays?


Liability for damage caused by objects falling from space is regulated by the 1972 Convention on International Liability for Damage Caused by Space Objects, according to NASA public affairs officer Beth Dickey. When the U.S. signed the pact, it agreed to be "absolutely liable to pay compensation for damage caused by its space object on the surface of the Earth or to aircraft in flight." That goes if UARS, or anything else NASA has put into orbit, crashes down in Kansas, France or Zimbabwe. .........

..............One slight hitch in the treaty is that you have to present your claim no later than one year after the incident (or discovery of the damage). If you've got a bus-size satellite sitting in your living room, however, we suspect that satisfying this condition would not be an issue.

I went to the NASA link Phage posted on page 3. The newest updates said that they expect it to enter the atmosphere between 11:45 and 12:45 EST. It will be over Canada, the Atlantic Ocean or Africa when it enters.

Sorry I didn't provide the link. I'm posting from my phone and its a pain to add the extras.

Thank you for the quick reply
Seems very odd to me that they don't have a better idea as to where this thing is going to hit, but who am I to judge the great scientists...lol There seems to be a lot of people on here from Kentucky, makes me feel right at home.

here is the link to that:

Update #12 Fri, 23 Sep 2011 09:50:07 PM CDT As of 10:30 p.m. EDT on Sept. 23, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 85 miles by 90 miles (135 km by 140 km). Re-entry is expected between 11:45 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, and 12:45 a.m., Sept. 24, Eastern Daylight Time (3:45 a.m. to 4:45 a.m. GMT). During that time period, the satellite will be passing over Canada and Africa, as well as vast areas of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans. The risk to public safety is very remote.

Maybe it will come down in Libya and NATO forces will shoot it out of the sky thinking its a missile.

By now, I think most of these trackers have stopped being reliable.

I would guess it'll come down over Africa somewhere. Hopefully they've all got their cell phone cameras ready.
The Indian Ocean is also likely, but not quite as interesting.

Yes,CL,I was thinking the same,and you are probably right.
Show over??

I was at least expecting a big ball of fire when it was done,animated of course.

Does anybody else think it would be really funny if it landed right on top of the Denver Airport?

You are trying to rationalize and condone this behavior, really?

It is NOT okay to drop satellites. Or plunge them into other planets. Or blow a hole in MY Moon. Or spray WHATEVER....in our skies that look to be chemtrails. This is NOT okay with me.


Who makes up these rules that affects each and every one of us?????
I never voted for any of this.

The sad truth is: we are all just prisoners on this planets. THEY, the PTB (including NASA because their boss is in the loop) run the show. They have the power, they have the money, they have the say-so and they have all the bullsh*t feel-good stories to go along with it all. Like: they're doing all these risky things in space for OUR benefit and future.
Really? Nothing has changed for the better in the fifty years I've been here. In fact, the 'better' they get (i.e. cellphones) the quicker we'll all die of cancer.

End rant~

In a remote section of Kenya would be an ironic ending
