NASA again and again that there are only Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) fiery re-entry of the 26 pieces that will withstand the environment in a very remote risk of the public expected. “Is not yet known with certainty,” he said NASA satellite back to earth today is difficult, but the exact time and location of re-entry.

On his Twitter feed, NASA said that the most likely area of ​​Canada debris fell to the ground. UARS as one of two dozen that can survive re-entry space agency did not say 158 kg, and the debris field vistarata 800 kilometers can be expected.

Tumbling satellite motion is difficult to narrow down the location. Part of the world’s water, which was considering the possibility of landing in the ocean considering that 70 per cent.

“In the entire history of the space program over 50 years, never re-enter a piece of space debris have been injured,” said Mark Matney, an orbital debris scientist for NASA.

“Keep in mind that we are pieces of debris to re-enter the atmosphere every day.” On Friday, NASA spokesman, said agency space debris tracking, and U.S. federal departments and agencies engaged in disaster information is in defiance.

Federal Aviation Administration on Thursday for a pilot and flight crews to the potential dangers of space debris falling to report any requests for them to notice, and takes care of your location and time. Also Friday, the Italian civil protection agency warned that 1.5 to 0.6 per cent of an accident in Uttar Pradesh is likely to rise, and urged residents to stay inside the load on the lower level, with priority bearing walls.


A broken orbital debris experts say the space junk, satellites and spent rocket to come once a year about the size of Earth, though NASA satellite as three decades. Mother NASA Skylab 85 tons in 1979, crashed in Western Australia. Trip – just the size UARS, which started in 1991 and in 2005 was part of the idle, fuel tank, titanium, beryllium and stainless steel housing are expected – including batteries and wheel rims. NASA spokesman said: “No consideration was given to shoot down.

If fuel is not the car explosion, impact, and NASA also said on Twitter. “Space debris burning” argument a “myth”, “landing on the planet to heat up the pieces do not expect to be warm in UARS. Off, NASA said it to 36km, which is then cooled, and added that UARS is a radioactive metal pieces, but nothing could be severe.

U.S. space agency warned that anyone who believes it can feel UARS debris can contact the authorities for help.Compensate for the loss limit, “von der Dunk said that the 80 States signed the 1972 Liability Convention is the American context.
