ANOTHER SATELLITE PLUNGING TO EARTH, Better Odds than UARS
Another satellite will make an uncontrolled plunge back to Earth in late October or early in November. The German ROSAT astronomy satellite weighs less than 2.5 tons, but experts says more pieces could survive re-entry than the UARS satellite.

The German space agency puts the odds of anyone anywhere on Earth being hurt by its satellite at 1-in-2,000, slightly highter than the 1-in-3,200 odds for UARS. But given there are 7 billion people on Earth, any one person’s odds of being struck are 1-in-14 trillion.
