I lost my bike once. It was difficult to find, so I know how they are feeling. Of course, my bike didn't weigh 20 tons, cost millions upon millions or fall from the sky...

I had a roommate once who was psychic. No, she really was. Proved it to me a half a dozen different times and ways.
Anyway, she told me about a trick. When you lose something and are frustrated, just stop and say; Kathy's Grandma, please help me find such-and-such, and then state your reason for needing to find it. Usually, I get an idea right after I say this and when I follow up, there is the lost article.
This has worked for me so many times. Not only that but she told me to feel free to tell others about it if I wanted to. Almost everyone has come back and reported that it works. Including my current boss!
I'll shoot NASA an email and we'll get Kathy's grandma on the case.
BTW, this is not a joke. Try it, it really does work.
determine the range, altitude, direction, or speed of both moving and fixed objects such as aircraft, ships, spacecraft, guided missiles, motor vehicles, weather formations, and terrain. The radar dish, or antenna, transmits pulses of radio waves or microwaves which bounce off any object in their path. The object returns a tiny part of the wave's energy to a dish or antenna which is usually located at the same site as the transmitter.
The Navy’s death ray weapon keeps burning through laser records, on its way to the ultimate goal of searing through 2,000 feet of steel per second.

It is my understanding that Space Command can radar track any space junk that is 10 centimeters (3.9 in) or larger. Now to lose all contact with a "school bus" is just crazy. And they do not even know the time it broke orbit. I think someone knows the very second it broke orbit and just where it landed. The crazy thing is if they were trying to hide something on the UARS all they would had to do was lie and say it went down over water for a fact and nothing hit land. But to just say it disappeared with out a trace? So what gives? Is the UARS a victim of Disappearing Object Phenomenon or what?
