Satellite falling from orbit: Preble in danger?

September 23, 2011 at 10:09 pm

This just in: a top-secret NASA satellite is reported to be falling from orbit and will hit someplace in the USA in a matter of hours. The satellite is made out of high tech supermaterials such as stainless steel, titanium, and even beryllium. According to a NASA spokesperson, there is no way of knowing where the highly dangerous space debris will land. Could it be a threat to us here in Preble County? Find out after the “jump”:

To learn more about whether the satellite will hit Preble, I called meteorologist Ken Whitley with the Channel 5 News. Ken had this to say:

“I read on the CNN website that there’s very little risk that the asteroid will hit people. It’s likely that it will land over a large body of water.”

Let’s hope the weatherman is right, for once! (Just busting your chops, Ken!)

What are you doing to prepare for the satellite strike? Let us know in the comments.

Have something to say about it?
