What Goes Up – Take 2

A few days ago I wrote about the US spy satellite that will soon come crashing to the Earth. “Falling US satellite is not dangerous,” was the sentiment attributed to NASA.

The Air Force looks at it a little differently. Gen. Gene Renuart, who heads of U.S. Northern Command was interviewed by the AP.

“…it looks like it might re-enter into the North American area,” then the U.S. military along with the Homeland Security Department and the Federal Emergency Management Agency will either have to deal with the impact or assist Canadian or Mexican authorities.

Say what?

We haven’t heard the last of this out-of-control bad boy. Odds are nothing happens, but today no one can guarantee that.

  1. How much you want to bet that in my homeowners insurance.. somewhere in some language that I don’t speak… is a clause that says satellites falling on my house is not covered.

  2. Ok.. Where’s Taco Bell on this one?

    When Space Station Mir was about to crash land, they put a huge target in the middle of the ocean and promised free tacos to everyone if a piece of the station hit the target.
