NASA meddder at satellitten er landet

 

NASA meddelte lidt før klokken 7 lørdag morgen, at den meget omtalte satellit UARS er landet på Jorden.

Man ved dog endnu ikke hvor, men det var NASA naturligvis ved at undersøge.

Der var dog ingen meldinger om tilskadekomne, eller ødelæggelser, så meget tyder på at der var tale om en fredeligt ladning eller styrt.

Her lan du se den officielle melding fra NASA:

- As of 10:30 p.m. EDT on Sept. 23, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 85 miles by 90 miles (135 km by 140 km). Re-entry was expected between 11:45 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, and 12:45 a.m., Sept. 24, Eastern Daylight Time (3:45 a.m. to 4:45 a.m. GMT).

During that time period, the satellite was passing over Canada and Africa, as well as vast areas of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans. The risk to public safety was very remote.

NASA is working to confirm the re-entry location and time and will provide an update shortly.
