"ROSAT"- German Satellite crash on the Earth !!!!!!
On February 26, 2011, the German news magazine Der Spiegel reported that the German government was in possession of a study indicating that the 2,400kg satellite was unlikely to burn up entirely while reentering the earth atmosphere due to the large amount of ceramics and glass used in construction. Parts as heavy as 400kg could crash on the Earth between October and December 2011.[1]

From the wikipedia link in the OP:

Allegations of cyber-attacks causing the failure

Ten years later in 2008, NASA investigators were reported to have found that the ROSAT failure was linked to a cyber-intrusion at Goddard Space Flight Center....

The root of this allegation is a 1999 advisory report by Thomas Talleur, senior investigator for cyber-security at NASA. This advisory is reported to describe a series of attacks from Russia that reached computers in the X-ray Astrophysics Section (i.e. ROSAT's) at Goddard, and took control of computers used for the control of satellies, not just a passive "snooping" attack. The advisory stated:

"Hostile activities compromised [NASA] computer systems that directly and indirectly deal with the design, testing, and transferring of satellite package command-and-control codes."

The advisory is further reported as claiming that the ROSAT incident was "coincident with the intrusion" and that, "Operational characteristics and commanding of the ROSAT were sufficiently similar to other space assets to provide intruders with valuable information about how such platforms are commanded". Without public access to the advisory, it is obviously impossible to comment in detail. However it does seem to describe a real intrusion; there is a plausible "no attack" explanation for ROSAT's failure, and the report is claimed to link the two incidents as no more than "coincident". IT security remains a significant issue for NASA, other systems including the Earth Observing System having also been attacked.

Saw it too!

A bit too much German Quality Works huh?
The Satellite is out of control already, so it´s only a Question how the dices will roll.

And how much of that "glass" and "ceramics" will have radiation attached to it ?

A likely story...


It's probably just a cover for the tail of Elenin and its sweeping debris, around the same date.

"It seems likely that UARS will avoid areas inhabited by humans, but the experience will be something of a dress rehearsal for a greater danger coming in November.

A German satellite telescope called Rosat is expected to re-enter with much bigger pieces, including a very large lens, still intact."

Eh, I heard there is a European startup selling a device to plug in on next satellites which are going to be launched next, which is supposed to deorbit them when the satellites stop working.... well, it does not solve the problem with rosat but at least no more junk satellites in Sapce in the future, isn't it?
