So there we go people, it's all over! Now they just need to find the pieces!

However it will be interesting to follow up about how much of political stir this will create as NASA tries to recover the wreckage. Here's hoping it's not in Pakistan or China!

Although it does not bother me that this has happened, what does bother me is the lack of control we had over it. I mean China and the USA had their little show with bringing down satellites a few years back to show off their own military might so why could they have not blown this up as it entered the upper atmosphere, avoiding the creation of more junk as well as leaving our minds at rest. IF you put it up there, YOU make sure it's down safely.

Soon we will hear about a quietly passed new law that made it a felony to not say "God bless you" when someone else sneezes.
No joke, I'm sure they used this satellite to sneak something past us when we weren't looking.

Well we got thru this one, time to pick up the pieces. By the way I just read a interesting story on Rsoe Edis about a meteor hitting a house in California. Peace.

I guess they thought of that.


Russia's last space station, the 135-tonnes Mir, crashed into the Pacific Ocean in 2001, but it was a guided descent. NASA now plans for the controlled re-entry of large spacecraft, but it did not when UARS was designed.

How silly. Spending billions to defend against a foreign power downing your sattelite, and dropping it out of the sky and being clueless on this just tells me that those billions were merely posturing and a cover to a weakness exposed today.

That weakness has been exposed regardless, and I feel it's an important issue, but not for the reasons mentioned in the MSM.

I think we overestimate our government here entirely too much on mundane things and far too little on serious matters.

Man... I just really think this would have ruffled my feathers way more than it seems to have ruffled those who were monitoring the "we-dunno-where-but-it's-coming-down-somewhere-in-our-vicinity-right-about-now" folks!
