Later this week, NASA predicts that all 1,200 pounds of the UARS, the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, will plunge back to earth. But NASA assures us that they don’t “expect” anyone to be hurt by the falling wreckage, the heaviest pieces of which are made of titanium, stainless steel or beryllium.
So, no worries. Just because the sky actually seems to be falling there is no need to panic. Amirite?
Here’s the legendary John Belushi doing a weekend update report on Saturday Night Live about a falling satellite, Skylab, that NASA had (also) no idea where it would land.
The more NASA changes, the more it stays the same.
Bonus: watch for a chilling prediction about the stability of the World Trade Center.
