NASA’s Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) is heading to earth and should be splashing down very soon. On Friday night, NASA said it expected the satellite to come crashing down between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. EDT. It was going to be passing over the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans at that time, as well as Canada, Africa and Australia.
NASA has set up a website to track the latest on the falling satellite. You can visit http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/uars/index.html to get the latest information and coordinates.
Houstonians can take comfort in the fact that no one has ever been hurt by falling space junk. According to a NASA website, NASA puts the chances that somebody somewhere on Earth would get hurt at 1-in-3,200. But any one person’s odds of being struck were estimated at 1-in-22 trillion, given there are 7 billion people on the planet.
