An old NASA satellite is set to crash to Earth sometime today, and the Satellite AR app can help you avoid getting clocked with a hunk of space junk.
There's a 1 in 3,200 chance that a piece of space debris will hit someone, according to reports.
Amateur video purports to show a few dozen pieces of the broken-up satellite on their way to a final resting place, perhaps somewhere in the Canadian wilderness?
As radar tracking improves, satellite watchers along the path of NASA's falling UARS satellite may have a chance to spot the doomed spacecraft, but they'll need patience and a large dose of luck.
An old NASA satellite is expected to fall back into the atmosphere late this month, resulting in a shower of debris, more than 1,000 pounds of which will hit the ground. But experts say public risk is minimal.
A European gravity-mapping satellite will soon go out in a blaze of glory, which could be coming to an ocean or field (and hopefully nowhere else) near you.
No one has been reported injured by the satellite that fell to Earth in the early hours of this morning. The bad news? Another one's on the way.
A 6.3-ton satellite re-enters the atmosphere, presumably showering debris across a 500-mile-long impact zone, though details are still sketchy.
Satellite trackers may never know where NASA's derelict UARS satellite ended up, but it appears likely any debris that survived re-entry fell harmlessly into the Pacific Ocean. Maybe.
The descent of a dead, bus-size satellite has slowed a bit and radar tracking now indicates it will fall back to Earth late Friday or early Saturday, possibly showering debris along a 500-mile-long "footprint."
