A Bus May Land on My Head

A report in the Washington Post, citing unnamed government sources is claiming that a US spy satellite has lost control and is on an uncontrolled crash path back to earth. The controllers apparently have no way to tell at the moment where it will land – so it could end up on your house.

The article weirdly though spends most of its time worrying about the possibility of the rocket fuel inside the satellite being harmful – although I would have thought having a bus sized lump of metal landing on top of you would be vastly more harmful.

Watch the Skies!
