Here we go again. An out of service German satellite is hurtling towards Earth and may re-enter its atmosphere this weekend, according to the German Aerospace Centre. Last month small pieces of NASA's Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) crash-landed somewhere in the Pacific Ocean.
NASA, working with the Joint Space Operations Center at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, believe they have figured out where the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, UARS, crash landed on Saturday morning.
NASA's defunct Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) is due to re-enter Earth's atmosphere sometime between today and this Saturday, although scientists are unable to accurately predict where it will eventually land.
They are over 100 miles wide, over a mile high, and are regular occurrences in Phoenix, Az. These clouds, called Haboobs, happen in arid areas of the world, most commonly the Sahara desert, the Arabian Peninsula, the Central United Stats, affecting states as diverse as Kuwait and Iraq, to Texas and New Mexico.
NASA has released an official free app for Google Android devices. The app has been generally well received by Android users although many, including ourselves, have been complaining that the app is slow and buggy on some Android devices
