BREAKING on New Scientist: After UARS, a *second* dead satellite is headed earthward - and it has a greater risk of injury
After UARS, a *second* dead satellite is headed earthward - and it has a greater risk of injury

Full Story from New Scientist: [link to www.newscientist.com]

Even if NASA's 6-tonne UARS satellite does not cause any injury or damage when it re-enters the Earth's atmosphere today, there is more space junk headed our way next month. A defunct German space telescope called ROSAT is set to hit the planet at the end of October – and it even is more likely than UARS to cause injury or damage in populated areas.

No one yet knows where UARS (Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite) will fall to earth. Although most of the craft's mass will be reduced to an incandescent plasma, some 532 kilograms of it in 26 pieces are forecast to survive – including a 150-kilogram instrument mounting.

THE SKY IS FALLING, THE SKY IS FALLING

Why did the chicken cross the road? To avoid being hit by a falling satelite.

The US Government recently declassified the Spy Satelites used from Late 60s to the early 80s. The think looks like a Winnabago. Probably put it out there since they look like they could be reentering due to gravitational anamolies in the solar system.

On a more serious note, how many have to fall out of the sky at roughly the same time before we can rule out coincidence?

Re: BREAKING on New Scientist: After UARS, a *second* dead satellite is headed earthward - and it has a greater risk of injury
there might be more junk coming. the sun is the cause. there has been a unexpected up tick in solar activity. with out the shuttle we can not go and retrieve any of them.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), launched in February 2010, made the finding: About 1 in 7 flares experience an “aftershock.” About ninety minutes after the flare dies down, it springs to life again, producing an extra surge of extreme ultraviolet radiation.

“We call it the ‘late phase flare,’” says Woods. “The energy in the late phase can exceed the energy of the primary flare by as much as a factor of four.”

What causes the late phase? Solar flares happen when the magnetic fields of sunspots erupt—a process called “magnetic reconnection.” The late phase is thought to result when some of the sunspot’s magnetic loops re-form. A diagram prepared by team member Rachel Hock of the University of Colorado shows how it works.

The extra energy from the late phase can have a big effect on Earth. Extreme ultraviolet wavelengths are particularly good at heating and ionizing Earth’s upper atmosphere. When our planet’s atmosphere is heated by extreme UV radiation, it puffs up, accelerating the decay of low-orbiting satellites. Furthermore, the ionizing action of extreme UV can bend radio signals and disrupt the normal operation of GPS.

Not that we would anyway. It would be cheaper for NASA to pay off the survivors than to launch a shuttle to prevent any problems.

Well satellites are beng fried for sure. New Scientist won't lie. Not sure if there is something else that may be incoming....suspicions have been around that a Brown Dwarf bigger than Jupiter may be lurking on the edges of the solar system. Also, according to NASA, mystery cosmic rays from a "near by" source (a micro-Quasar perhaps) have been detected: [link to science.nasa.gov]

Depends on what kind of Solar blast they get subjected to, nothing may survive out there in our orbit :-)

Besides all the original GPS satellites sent over by US circa 1983 , are due to go end-of-life between 2011 and 2013. No mission to replace them have been planned before 2015. Boeing was iven the contract to send up a new constelltion in 2007 but that was also scrapped.

[link to www.physorg.com]

The United States plans to invest over 5.8 billion dollars in GPS space- and ground-based systems through 2013 but the GAO expressed concern that "over the next several years many of the older satellites in the constellation will reach the end of their operational life faster than they will be replenished."
