The Sky Is Falling (Maybe)

An old NASA satellite the size of a bus will be plunging uncontrolled to earth some time today. Somewhere. They think. Or maybe not.

It won’t hit North America. Definitely. They’re pretty sure.

The six-ton satellite is expected to break into about 26 large pieces which may arrive in a 500-mile re-entry zone and will likely land either in water or on uninhabited land. Probably.

It seems to me we’ve heard this song before…

It’s raining space junk, hallelujah!

    The snark is strong today…still chuckling.

    My prediction: The moment those 500 pieces hit Terra-firma, (probably), the Obama administration will immediately claim credit for “creating 500 shovel-ready jobs…” (definitely).

    Something’s fishy with this one folks. How many times in our lives have we been told that NORAD could track objects as small as your fist and thousands of them at a time for that matter? We’re to believe that they couldn’t follow a 6.5 ton bus sized object down?
    C’mon folks, the conspiracy nut in me says something super secret was going on here. Not that I mind of course.
