Heads up! Satellite to crash to earth this week.

Weather satellite will come crashing to earth this week.  It's the  size of a large bus and 6.5 tons.   26 pieces are expected to survive reentry.  There is a 1 in 32,000 chance of a piece hitting a human.  NASA will not be able to pinpoint where they wilol hit and will only be able to say within 6,000 miles two hours before impact.

This is only the first of many satellite impacts in the coming days.
