With the many worries of our modern world, how is it that I am now consumed with the idea that I may be struck by falling space debris? Well, the short answer is that a NASA satellite is about to come crashing through our atmosphere and the scientists are not quite sure exactly where or when it will fall. There are thousands of pieces of man made space junk orbiting Earth and if my limited physics knowledge helps me at all, I do believe that one piece will eventually fall back into your backyard -especially if your backyard is the Pacific Ocean.
Okay, I know that there are many places on the earth that the satellite could fall other than on my head, but that doesn't stop me from thinking that it could happen.
- Did you hear about "so & so"?
- Do you mean that dude who was killed by a NASA satellite?
- Yeah, that's the dude.
- I never liked that dude.
Look up, the sky IS falling.
