Crippled Spy Satellite Will Crash to Earth

spy satelliteA U.S. spy satellite has lost power and “government officials” predict that it will come crashing to earth in late February or early March.

The satellite, which no longer can be controlled, could contain hazardous materials, and it is unknown where on the planet it might come down, they said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the information is classified as secret.

“Appropriate government agencies are monitoring the situation,” said Gordon Johndroe, a spokesman for the National Security Council, when asked about the situation after it was disclosed by other officials. “Numerous satellites over the years have come out of orbit and fallen harmlessly. We are looking at potential options to mitigate any possible damage this satellite may cause.”

  1. I’m sure the Chinese would be glad to shoot down the beast before it hits the earth. It would give them another change to test fire another warhead.

    My 5yr old boy says he has been wondering a lot since he saw this
    news. He wonders why America can’t just send Bruce Willis
    (Armageddon) or Will Smith (Independence Day) to take care of the
    problem.

    He wonders why a coalition of Superman, Spiderman and the X-Men can’t
    do something about the problem without the whole world being caused
    some panic.

    Do I give him a straight answer or just unplug the cable tv?

    u slučaju o orbitalnoj stanici je bilo otkazivanja u položaju same stanice što je doprinelo da se ona nevidi na planšeti što se utvrdilo samim pogledom sa stanice ako je satelit prodat preotet od strane druge kompanije da bi upravljao svojim podacima sigurno nije isključen već samo senzore preusmeriti na drugi paralelni satelit blizanac negde u bliskoj orbiti radi zamene ili dupliranja
