NASA announced that another satellite will fall on Earth

The space agency estimates that the German Rosat, 2.4 tons, will impact in any area of Canada next week

After the expectation that the announcement caused a satellite falling out of control, which finally ended in the waters of the Pacific, NASA reported that another, the German Rosat, will rush to Earth next week. The place? Not specified any areas of Canada.

The German satellite ROSAT was part of a joint project between Germany, the United States and Britain. It weighs 2.4 tonnes and is out of operation since 1999, when it was shut after a failure in its guidance systemIt is speculated that the problem was related to the entry of viruses into the computer system.

Experts say that during its entry into the Earth, the satellite will break in about 30 large pieces and some of them, with a total massup to 1.6 tons, could survive the collapse across the atmosphere.

German control center reported that there is a possibility that between 2,000 Rosat damage any part of any person, as published by the Daily Mail today

Two weeks ago the UARS satellite fell into the Pacific, after several days of speculation about where the precipitate.

But UARS and Rosat are not the only ones causing concern among experts. In the report that NASA should study the situation of the "fleet" of satellites in space, as a unit operator Telesat CanadaAnik F2, also held in recent days on edge scientists.

The satellite, which provides services to U.S. and Canadian customers (including a broadband service), suffered a failure last week by mistake in the software that was disabled 12 hoursIt was initially considered the possibility that Anik F2 also could fall to Earth, but ultimately the only problem was that caused left millions of users without Internet and 48 flights on the ground, with about 1,000 passengers affected.
