An artistâ€™s concept of the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) satellite in space. The 6 1/2-ton satellite was deployed from space shuttle Discovery in 1991 and decommissioned in December 2005
Unless you are living under a rock, and even then, a rock without a connection to the Internet, we all are aware of the Satellite that was scheduled to fall over the planets surface in an unknown location.
NASA’s earlier calculations had predicted that the former climate research satellite would fall over a 500-mile swath and could include land. Officials said the 35-foot satellite fell sometime between 11:23 p.m. EDT Friday and 1:09 a.m. EDT Saturday.
Much of the speculation focused on unconfirmed reports and even video of debris from the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite over Alberta, Canada.
What we now know to the best of our abilities is where it fell, which now looks to be in Canada of all places.
Interestingly enough, Canada was the focus of one of the last entry posted in the Lifestyle/Hotspots section of this online publication, which was published on Wednesday, September 21, 2011.
