You limey bastards don't have anything to worry about...latest projection I read was that it's to fall somewhere over here.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1556594


yeah yank, do you even know why we are called limeys?

you, you, doodle dandy
 Quoting: doom_mood


1) From my cousin who attends King's College and my aunt and uncle who both graduated from Oxford, where one is now a prof, it's because of all the scurvy and the Royal Navy giving lime juice to help combat it.

Oh, and I'm a redneck, not a yankee. Though I disagree with slavery whole-heartedly.
 Quoting: MrsWilliams


Correctomundo


Limey is an old slang nickname, often pejorative, for the British, originally referring to their sailors. The term is believed to derive from Lime (fruit), referring to the Royal Navy and Merchant Navy practice of supplying lime juice to British sailors to prevent scurvy.[1] The benefits of citrus juice were well known at the time thanks to the acute observations of surgeon James Lind who studied the effects of citrus on scurvy in 1747.[2]

Limes replaced lemons because limes were more readily available from Britain's own Caribbean colonies. Lemon juice was reintroduced after scurvy again became a problem because of lime juice lacking sufficient vitamin C.

Re: **RED ALERT*** UARS TRACKING WEBSITE IS OFFLINE!
So here's what the Russians think is going to happen with UARS satellite:

(This was taken from the following website which is written in Russian and using Google Translate to translate to English: [link to www.newsru.com]



U.S. satellite debris fall into the Pacific Ocean on the night of September 24

Experts Main control center space specified place and time of falling debris of the American scientific satellite UARS, confirming that the wreckage on land does not fall out.

"As of September 21 morning, the impact area is defined in 90 km northwest of Port Moresby Island in the Coral Sea. Estimated time of falling debris - 00:05 (GMT) on 24 September", - has informed "Interfax" on Wednesday, an official representative of the Press Service and Information Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation Space Forces Col. Alexei Zolotukhin.

According to him, the coordinates of the intended impact region - 10 degrees south latitude and 146 degrees east longitude.

On Monday, the specialists of the Main Control Center Space Space Forces engaged in continuous monitoring of parameters of the satellite orbit UARS, expecting an uncontrolled fall of its fragments on September 23 in the Indian Ocean at coordinates 40 degrees south latitude and 54 degrees east longitude.

Last Thursday, they predicted the fall of fragments on 23 September in the Pacific Ocean at coordinates 18 degrees south latitude and 173 degrees east longitude.

UARS spacecraft was launched into orbit on space shuttle Discovery September 15, 1991. Originally it was planned that the unit will work in orbit for three years, but he was taken out of service for only 14 December 2005.

The satellite was designed to study the chemical compounds contained in the ozone layer, temperature and wind in the stratosphere. Such measurements allow scientists to get an idea of the role of the upper atmosphere in climate change.

While UARS passes into Earth orbit 195-210 km, according to NASA. The U.S. space agency has not taken to indicate the point of incidence, but assures that it will not stay in the United States. The same report warns NASA: If you find a subject that, in your opinion, is a fragment of UARS, do not touch it and inform local law enforcement agencies.

In the history of operating satellites and their debris falling to Earth are not recorded a single case of human death, as well as property damage, according to NASA.

Using the same Russian news source
[link to www.newsru.com]
says the following:



In early October, the Earth will flow strong meteor shower

In early October, come down to Earth a strong meteor shower, which will be visible to the naked eye. His will-Zinner comet Dzhakobini, "Interfax".

About Comet Dzhakobini-Zinner told the head of the Zvenigorod Laboratory of the Institute of Astronomy, Sergei Barabanov. "This comet is close enough to periodically pass away, and, revolving around the sun, it is influenced by solar radiation, thus throwing away a certain amount of gas and dust. The naked eye you will see only the meteors. It's the dust particles and even small pieces of ice, are released, "- said in a statement Barabanov, shown on the website Space Agency.

Comet Dzhakobini-Zinner, scientists have found in the early twentieth century. She often passes by Earth, but not always accompanied by the emergence of strong meteor showers. The last time they were observed half a century ago.

Speaking of comets, Head of the Laboratory of Space Research Institute RAS Igor Mitrofanov said that they brought water to earth and precious metals. "Earth's water that flows in our rivers and oceans - water, delivered by comets. After the early Earth formed, it was very hot, and there was virtually no water, then over the years hundreds of billions of water delivered to us comet "- he said.

Together with the asteroid material to Earth and got a lot of precious metals such as platinum and gold.

Most of the available deep in the Earth's reserves of precious metals fell to Earth is under attack 20 trillion tons of asteroid material. Such calculations performed Matthias Uillbold the University of Bristol, said in an article published by the Latvian newspaper "Telegraph". The scientists examined the isotopes of tungsten in the samples of rock taken from Greenland and found that the rocks were formed before the meteorite "bomb" that is earlier than 3.8 billion years ago, are very different in composition from the tungsten isotopes formations that emerged later. This discovery confirmed the theory that delivery of precious metals to Earth by meteorites.

Because NASA are embarrassed to say anything until the last moment as usual and its hardly rocket science to them is it to work out the precise time and area of impact afterall they are able to make out JPL orbits of objects that are in deep space!

Exactly. How stupid do they think the American public is? Do they really, really believe that we all think NASA can't determine when and where this thing will hit? I work in health care and a lot of people have been talking about this the past few days; not a few have been saying that NASA is full of total shit. Not a small number. Many. Many who I thought were asleep.
NASA is putting nails in their trust coffin with this bullshit. People I thought would lap up their crap with a spoon are cocking eyebrows the past two days.
I like it. This is ridiculous.

Re: **RED ALERT*** UARS TRACKING WEBSITE IS OFFLINE!
Right now it is near Australia at 216km altitude. According to NASA,

NASA defines 122 kilometers for re-entry altitude, the altitude at which shuttles must switch from steering with thrusters to maneuvering as an airplane. Once UARS descends to this altitude, it will fall very fast.

According to the NASA Orbital Debris Program Office, solar arrays usually break off the spacecraft at an altitude of about 95 to 90 kilometers; the rest of the spacecraft breaks up at between 84 and 72 kilometers, when aerodynamic forces exceed the spacecraft's structural strength. Components made of low-melting-point materials (like aluminum) burn up at altitude, while components made of higher-melting-point materials (like titanium, steel, and carbon-fiber) survive longer. If an object is contained inside a housing, the housing must burn up before the interior receives significant heating.

Official updates on the impact location prediction will be prepared and released to the public at the following intervals: impact minus 2 days, minus 1 day, minus 12 hours, minus 6 hours, and minus 2 hours. However, even just two hours before reentry, the uncertainty of reentry time is on average ± 25 minutes for circular orbits, which equates to ± 12,000 kilometers on Earth, or roughly half its orbit.

There are 26 components of UARS that are predicted to fall to the ground, amounting to 532 kilograms of material. This debris will be scattered in a narrow zone along its orbital track that's a bit under 1000 kilometers long.

BUT I did notice that she's GAINING altitude? How can that be?
 Quoting: Beezy


The sat is in an elliptical orbit: the altitude oscillates between a low point (the apogee) and a high point (the perigee), but both are decreasing over time. The chart near the bottom of this page shows the progression:

There is also a live countdown clock and some good links.

@doom_mood

it may have skipped out of orbit assuming it hit weird i guess its mathematically possible NASA actually uses a entry vector to slow craft into orbits around other planets id assume if it gained enough speed in its decay orbit it could exit orbit.

most likely though its caused buy how they are getting the altitude relative to the earth.
