Keeping An Eye On The Heavens Tonight

MayDay20100025

That’s our house above. The reason I put it there is in case that spaceship debris that is falling thru space, aimed at “anywhere on earth,” comes down and hits right on top of our home-sweet-home, you will have seen it for the last time here on this blog page. (sniff)

They say it will be coming down with a thud or a splash around midnight (Eastern Standard Time) tonight, that’s about 3 hours from now. If we are the big lottery winner, we may not be here after that. They say the chances of getting hit by it are 1 in 3,200. Can that be right? Those are good odds!

So it’s goodbye cruel world, I’m off to join the circus… or something like that … if it hits our home. If not, my condolences to whosever house it does hit – maybe it will go splash in the night instead of splat on a home or persons.

Story Here

I am so glad we are getting out of the space program!

Cheers,

Bex

    Rhu beat me to it. Yes, the odds for one person are in the trillions.

    I believe they said that the satellite did a big arc from about Seattle over northern Canada and then back down into the Atlantic.

    “But any one person’s odds of being struck have been estimated at 1-in-22 trillion, given there are 7 billion people on the planet.”

    I like those odds. About the same as being hit by a meteorite. May your house be safe, no evil enter there.

    The chances of “being hit” by something from an artificial satellite are astronomically small.

    How many people have been hit by “natural” satellites (mini-moons) in decaying orbits?

    How many people are hit by “natural” stuff deliberately thrown by a human?
