And it just might land on you!

So, should we start taking bets on where it's gonna land, or start moving everything of value into the basement?

My bad, that was the StumbleUpon link! Should still work, but here is the original page.

Pretty long odds that it'll actually hit someone. My bet is that it'll land in water somewhere.

I really hope it hits land and some story comes out of it instead of it landing in the ocean somewhere. Not that I want anyone to die though.

Also, I'm not sure it would be worth working for NASA if your job title was space junk expert.

One in 3,200 chance of hitting someone. I think we're safe.

Someone has to tell us what space AIDS is like, and it's not going to be me.

This thread just went political!

I'm hoping for Romney, that centrist jerk.

The simple fact is that some people will never be happy, no matter how good their lives are.

By the way, assuming there are 7 billion people in the world there is a 1/2,240,000,000,000 chance of it hitting you.

Yes, I know that was the obvious choice to wish for this to land on.

At first I laughed at the odds of the satellite actually hitting someone, but if it does actually kill someone... then some force in the universe likes to prove me wrong.

Still, very interesting. Thanks for the link OP.

To my luck, it will land right on top of my freshly cut lawn.

I wonder how many here have seen Donny Darko.

Yeah, I think those odds are more likely then us getting hit by a meteor, and most people seem to take that shit more seriously so...

Come on guys, we've all seen the movies: there ain't no WAY that thing is landing safely in the water. $20 says it will land in Wade's backyard, shortly followed by an OH SNAP thread with super high-res pics.

That is, of course, implying that the whole city wouldn't be decimated in the rubble's wake.

Its a freaking satellite, not a nuke

I am gonna ask this once, going off topic. And I really should know this already, but I am confused about evkats gender. Is it just me? Did I miss the joke? Is sevkat this confused about his/her gender?

I wish I could see this with my own eyes, space is really awesome, and anything that has been in space and comes to Earth is even more awesome, even if it was originally made on Earth.

I'd love to be there and pick up some scraps of this when it falls, unfortunately that will not happen. :(


Yeah, whatever.

I heard on the radio that it might not even possibly be that (and it might be a bigger number than 3,200)

Likely outcome: It will land in the ocean.

Unlikely outcome: It will land on a giant tub of nuclear warheads, casuing them all to explode and blowing a massive chunk out of the earth.
