BBC News - Nasa refines satellite crash time

Scary, should they be forced to act more responsibly with space junk/waste?

As Brits we're forced to recycle and take care of our trash, but it seems the space agency are free to take calculated risks with human life during the disposal of space junk, for the purpose of investigating space.

What's that term? Collateral damage? Let's hope, if it doesn't burn up entirely, that the remaining pieces land in water.

I'm off to check my home insurance coverage though, just to be safe :car:

Well, we're taking our old floor mounted boiler out next week and I was just going to sell it for scrap, but might put it on ebay now as one of the afterburners (complete with space soot:gulme:). Ted

I hope you drive carefully. Global statistics suggest that only one person, Lottie Williams, has ever been hit by a bit of satellite and she wasn't injured. About three quarters of a million people die every year from traffic accidents. So I wouldn't be worried about this - unless Lottie moved in next door of course.
