This is how the zombie flick traditionally starts, you know.
A 2,000-pound European satellite has run out of fuel and is expected to plunge back to Earth sometime between 1:30 PM EST and 7:00 PM, scientists with Europe’s Space Debris Office said Sunday.
As of 9:30 A.M. EST it was over Greenland and racing toward Canada; it will pass over the Dakotas, Colorado and New Mexico shortly. Where precisely it will crash remains up in the air.
…And may they be forgiven for that pun.
Anyway, a dramatic reenactment of the event will be below the fold.
2000 lb satellite will crash today, no one knows where. Look out Dakotas, Colorado, and New Mexico folks! http://t.co/8LyXSKA36c
