fuckin' server too busy, go figure. thanks anyway mr. sin
it's working now, hope it doesn't crash. the site that is.
its at about 590,000 ft now, should get real interesting at about 300,000 ft
if this fucker hits a populated area all i can say is wow...i know a lot will be burned off due to reentry but how much? and yes i am thinking extreme the thought of the amount of damage and death.
info and facts about the uars http://umpgal.gsfc.nasa.gov/
The satellite was launched in 1991 by the Space Shuttle Discovery. It is 35 feet long, 15 feet in diameter, weighs 13,000 pounds, and carries 10 instruments. UARS orbits at an altitude of 375 miles with an orbital inclination of 57 degrees. Designed to operate for three years, six of its ten instruments are still functioning.
we got a jinx on this one.
NASA estimates that the satellite's path is on collision course with our very own wackbag server. After impact, valuable information concerning the real post counts will be forever lost, leaving the bag in 909 limbo until the Sun mercifully explodes and ends our misery.
I vote we all pray that it lands on the biggest mosque in Mecca.
This thing has the potential of killing thousands of people but it'll just end up killing some lucky goat.
WTF is this? A goat hit by a satellite?
nasa just said due to the decent of the satellite they cant rule out a crash landing in the usa. to early to tell atm
At about 490,000 ft. Starting to drop faster now
As of 7 p.m. EDT on Sept. 23, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 90 miles by 95 miles (145 km by 150 km). Re-entry is expected between 11 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, and 3 a.m., Sept. 24, Eastern Daylight Time (3 a.m. to 7 a.m. GMT). During that time period, the satellite will be passing over Canada, Africa and Australia, as well as vast areas of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans. The risk to public safety is very remote.
