The venerable German astronomical satellite ROSAT is due to come back down in about a month or so. Smaller than UARS a little over 2 tons, as opposed to over 6 ROSAT will probably have more pieces survive the ride down because its mirrors had to be shielded from heat to operate. That means the odds of it hitting someone will be slightly higher than from UARS, about 1 in 2000.

It's a smaller satellite, yet our odds of getting hit are greater.
