Incoming Toxic Satellite

Hey loons, remember me talking about that Russian satellite Phobos-Grunt? You know , the one expected to crash to earth anytime soon! Well, about that, seems the friggin thing is full of seriously toxic fuel making it one of the most toxic falling satellites ever. Oh and there is even more great news. The friggin thing could crash Down Under. Assume the crash position Aussie loons and don those hard hats until further notice.

Duck Everybody, the Phobos-Grunt Probe Is Coming Down!

Has anyone heard of the Phobos-Grunt probe? And No, it has nothing to do with aliens…ah never mind. It’s a Russian spaceship, which was intended to be heading to Mars, but got stuck in the wrong orbit after blast off and is now out of control and expected to crash land somewhere on earth. Oh that’s just friggin dandy, has anyone seen my hard hat?.  And yes, we are getting the usual spiel about “don’t panic” the likelihood of it landing on someone’s noggin is near to none.

Want sauce with that?

Another Satellite Expected To Crash Land Back Down To Earth

What are the friggin odds?

Sorry Loons, you will have to take the brace position one more time as another satellite is about to crash land back to earth. This time its a German ROSAT weighing about 3 tons. The thing’s been orbiting the earth since 1990 but officials lost communication with it in 1999. The German Aerospace Centre (DLR) predict chunks will crash to earth at the end of October or early November. I’m just hoping experts knocked on wood before they declared “in the more than 50-years of space history not a single person has been harmed by pieces of falling satellites”.  Hmm, yeah, like how many have crashed landed back to earth in that time? 3?
