MOSCOW, September 23 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian space forces expect the debris of a dead NASA satellite to fall in the southern Indian Ocean on Friday.
“According to specified data, it may fall in the Indian Ocean north of the Crozet Islands,” Space forces spokesman Alexei Zolotukhin told Tass.
The 6.5-ton Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) is set to make an uncontrolled re-entry into Earth's atmosphere on Friday and NASA so far cannot determine where the debris will fall exactly, but one thing is certain: North America is clear.
NASA estimates at least 26 large pieces of the satellite weighing approximately 532 kilograms are expected to reach the ground. The debris will likely be scattered over a 500-mile long path and are likely to fall in water or remote, uninhabited areas.
Still “if you find something you think may be a piece of UARS, do not touch it. Contact a local law enforcement official for assistance,” NASA said.
