The Sky Will Be Falling Soon
It's been a busy day at NASA with the new photo's of previous moon landings being shown across the internet, now NASA is warning the sky may be falling where you are. It is very possible a 6.5 ton satellite may be re-entering the earth's atmosphere in late September or early October. The huge Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) is expected to make an uncontrolled fall soon. Much of the spacecraft is expected to burn up during re-entry, but some pieces are expected to make it intact to the ground according to NASA. The Space Agency will be taking measures to inform the public about the pieces of spacecraft that are expected to survive the fall. NASA says it's too early to determine where ground zero may be, but, "they'll let you know." The bird was launched in 1991 via a space shuttle and decommissioned in 1995. NASA predicts about 1,800 pounds will finally hit the ground and there is very little risk to the general public.
