Dead Satellite Not Falling As Fast As Expected

All week, I’ve been hearing about a non working satellite free falling in outer space and going to hit Earth.

The people at NASA weren’t really sure where it was going to hit. The good news, if there is any good news about this, is they have determined that it is slowing down. In a story AP, the “dead 6-ton satellite baffled NASA experts today by slowing its descent toward Earth and delaying its ultimate crash until the early part of the weekend.”

They think it will hit earth either later today or early Saturday morning. The estimated time they’re saying is between 6:00 p.m. tonight and 4:00 a.m. tomorrow. I don’t know about you but I really wouldn’t like this humongous piece of machinery landing in my backyard, or anywhere where people might be.

At least they say the odds of being struck have been estimated at 1-in-22 trillion. I wonder if there’s a plan for people to run and hide to protect themselves. Don’t they have some sort of a device to detect when it will hit Earth as it gets closer?
