MOSCOW, September 19 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s Space Forces changed the forecast regarding the site of the US’ unmanaged six-tonnes’ satellite UARS. According to the new data, it will fall on September 23 in the Indian Ocean north of the Crozet Islands.
"The main space control centre continues to monitor changes in the orbital parameters of the American UARS spacecraft, which continues an uncontrolled fall to the earth's surface," spokesman of Russia’s Space Troops Colonel Alexei Zolotukhin said on Monday.
"The analysis of information coming to the Centre from specialised tools of the Russian space monitoring system, allows to make a preliminary forecast of the expected date and the area where fragments of the spacecraft UARS will fall if they are not burned in the dense layers of the atmosphere,” Zolotukhin said. “As of September 19, falling fragments of UARS are expected on September 23 in the Indian Ocean at 40 degrees south latitude and 54 degrees east longitude."
Earlier, Russia’s Space Forces forecasted the falling area of the satellite in the Pacific Ocean.
