OUR BIG SATELLITE
DOESN'T LAND ON TOP OF YOU
A large* retired NASA satellite is due
to crash into our planet sometime today.
(*This satellite is really large, too . . .
at 6.5-tons, the size of a school bus.)
Most of it will burn upon re-entering the atmosphere,
but some very sizable chunks are predicted to hit.
Just where they hit is uncertain.
Irish book makers are taking bets
on where the big pieces land.
Here are the latest odds:
Africa - 9 to 4
South America - 11 to 4
North America & Asia - 3 to 1
Ireland - 66 to 1
Pacific Ocean - likely
Here's hoping all the pieces
miss you and yours!
