When You Wish Upon A Star... It Just May Fall On You!

NASA's 20 year old defunct UARS (Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite) is going to crash-land on Earth sometime this Friday (Sept 23, 2011).  NASA isn't quite sure what time... or exactly where.

Their closest estimate is somewhere between Northern Canada, and the Southern tip of South America...

Sometime Friday... plus or minus a day.

It may burn up in the atmosphere... or about half a ton of debris may (or may not) hit Earth...

AND, there's a 1 in 3000 chance it may hit you!  GREAAAAT.

Well, I guess it's better than it being this kind of falling star...
