Satellite UARS Debris Fallen To Canada


According to NASA, UARS satellite plunged through the atmosphere today
breaking up and scattering debris in Canada.  

The 13,000-pound (5,897 kg) satellite was dispatched into orbit by a space shuttle crew in 1991 to study ozone and other chemicals in Earth’s atmosphere. It completed its mission in 2005 and had been slowly losing altitude ever since, pulled by the planet’s gravity.
