Dare you look up?

I heard an interesting story on the news this evening - an out of control American satellite could be heading our way, meaning Earth! Now, wouldn't that get your day off to a bad start if it landed in your breakfast cereal? I can't even start to imagine just how far the milk would splash, and as for the muesli, well, it doesn't bear thinking about!

Anyway, if you haven't heard about how we are going to be squashed to a pulp by this latest piece of space debris, take a look at... Satellite could plummet to Earth!

Once upon a time, all we had to worry about was being hit by a bus as we crossed the road, now we have to be aware that that "bus" may well fall on us from above, at warp speed!

Oh, how times change!


  1. If I had known it was going to make it's way to England I would have thumed a lift ;-)

  2. Well it certainly did ruin part of my lesson as the kids started to ask "is it true?" "are we gonna die?" "wow! that's cool!" and i had no idea what they were talking about.
    Now i'll be in england next week so do you know the day and time? ;-)
