    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.

    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.

    This thing has the potential of killing thousands of people but it'll just end up killing some lucky goat.

    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.
