  • Skylab is back!!
  • Hey there!!! Remember Skylab?? Remember trying to guess where and when it was going to splat down and all the maps with "X" drawn on them predicting where it would crash?
    GUESS WHAT!! It's back!! Only this time, it's an unmanned Chinese space satellite disaster and was suppose to come down in late 2017 but they missed that guess. So, now it might have a 6 hour window to guess where it will crash. Whoops!!
    Oh yeah, only 19,000 pounds. Maybe they ought'a fire up Star Wars and shoot a few holes into it. That might help it burn up in the atmosphere. Maybe it will smack Kim Un in his back yard. Didn't he just launch a missile on his own city? Whoops.
    I wonder what Kimmy told his people when he blew them up? "They MADE me push the button!"

  • Space Junk! They used to report on it much more often. I wonder why? Lots of junk out there...

  • Best guess is it will land somewhere between 43 degrees South and 43 degrees North.
    I am just North of the 49th, so feel a bit safe. It must have been going around the equator. Well it still is I guess.
    They talk as if it is okay if it does not hit a populated area. But I would be a bit upset if it landed on my ship. 1 in 10000 chance of it hitting a city. But it is 100% if it lands in your back yard.
