It doesn't work that way...
Being near radioactivity does not make something radioactive.

All "radiation" is, is a stray part of an atom that has left it's host. It "shoots" out and can damage the atoms of an object it hits.

Neutron radiation is the only type that can "activate" a non-radioactive material.
 Quoting: Deus Ex



so neutron radiation is what atomic bombs produce? because they sure contaminate stuff

I thought space had the same radiation, as the sun is a giant reactor

also back in the day we were told in school never to touch space junk because of radiation risks, are you saying that is now been revised?

Yesterday was 0% chance of it hitting North America
Today it is "low probability" (10-30% maybe??) chance
Tonight.... It could hit? Possibly


NASA has already said they do not know when, or where its going to hit. The FAA sent out a notice to pilots today.

I'm not spreading fear.... I'm stating FACTS.


Do you have a link to the FAA Notice?

It has been tracking the same times. At 20:00 and 04:00 hours it goes right over California. You can check your area by going to n2yo.com create an account to change the home location to where you are. Track Uars and 5 day prediction. Click on the details of each one that appears to go over your home location. It will show you the exact times it flies over you.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1781082


Actually if you don't want to set up account, just google satellite flyby. You put your zip code in and it will tell you when it will fly over you. It lists all of the satellites that will fly over your area.

Update #10
Fri, 23 Sep 2011 10:45:08 AM EDT

As of 10:30 a.m. EDT on Sept. 23, 2011, the orbit of UARS was 100 miles by 105 miles (160 km by 170 km). Re-entry is expected late Friday, Sept. 23, or early Saturday, Sept. 24, Eastern Daylight Time. Solar activity is no longer the major factor in the satellite’s rate of descent. The satellite’s orientation or configuration apparently has changed, and that is now slowing its descent. There is a low probability any debris that survives re-entry will land in the United States, but the possibility cannot be discounted because of this changing rate of descent. It is still too early to predict the time and location of re-entry with any certainty, but predictions will become more refined in the next 12 to 18 hours.

---------------------------------------


That coupled with the FAA Notice makes me think they know its going to hit the US now.
 Quoting: UtahApoc


Ok, well, just because there now exists a "probability", I would not say its probable.... your statistically off in your interpretation of the language. You should say, US impact now a possibility...

Re: Nasa UARS update #10 - US hit Probable now
The possibility of one of these pieces hitting a Airliner is about the same 1/3200 probability floating around. Only the 'area' involved contains more people hence the higher risk.

I'd also put shipping into that category aswell, remember anyone under this thing who isn't at least 50 meters underground in a bunker, or outside sheltering behind a Eastern facing cliff/slope/wall is 'game' for the probabilities.

Re: Nasa UARS update #10 - US hit Probable now
NASA is on twitter now actively seeking to stop panic :


@NASA: Nothing radioactive on #UARS. Main reason NOT to touch anything that you think could be debris: sharp metal cuts.

NASA: @CaptainScenic @SubAstute Pieces of #UARS will have slowed down a lot by the time they reach Earth: could be as low as 30 mph.

NASA: The chances that you (yes, I mean YOU) will be hit by a piece of the #UARS satellite today are one in several trillion. Very unlikely.

NASA: Myth of "flaming space debris" - Pieces of #UARS landing on Earth will not be very hot. Heating stops 20 miles up, cools after that.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1733218


wait..30 miles per hour? Some of these pieces weigh several hundred pounds and they're saying that they will traveling at 30 mph??? What about terminal velocity? Objects that are in freefall don't slow down, it might maintain speed or even increase speed but they don't slow down. The average skydiver falls at 240 mph with arms and legs outstretched....just sayin.
