Oh No! A 6 Ton Satellite is falling back to earth....

A defunct Satellite ' The Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, or UARS,  ' is falling back into earth... this month....!!

Where will it's impact be...?

Scientists say it's not likely to hit a populated place.... (statistics says so)

Though most of its parts would burn away .... still about 150 kg may reach to ground!!!!!

The satellite is so big, its plunge through the atmosphere will be visible -- if anyone is around to see it.

WATCH  for it above your head..!!
