Beware of Falling Satellite Pieces as you Bike Today

Beware of falling satellite pieces if you bike today... there is one in a billion chance.... A decommissioned satellite weighing 6 tons will fall to earth Sept 23, 20ll. Most of the satellite will fall to earth, mostly stainless steel and rare metal pieces which will not burn completely. It is much lighter than Skylab (which was about l6 tons) which fell in Australia some years back. Scientists can not predict exactly where it will fall. Some say South Pacific? But just beware if you plan to bike today. Or better yet, bike some other day. Hehehe. I just learned that the satellite fall slowed down and has yet to fall. (9/25/2011)
