      Paradismsearch, this is gloom and doom sad However, on a positive note, I will take this metaphorically, I think it will land on Wall street.( and the city of London) Btw, where's the little green fella gone?

          Ok, kind of missing the little green furry fella already=(  Anyway, on a lighter note, and completely unrelated. But, if you still want hubs for your website, I have a gardening hub that seems to be doing quite well at the moment. If that could be a theme, you're welcome to it, if you want it, no problem if you don't. smile

                Looks good. I've already facebooked and tweeted it (I don't know why, but the tweet count takes awhile to update, let me know if it still hasn't changed by tomorrow).

                Your awesome hub link will show up in my blog in about 10 min. smile

    The odds continue to narrow...

    "According to the data we currently have, we expect it not to hit over Europe, Africa or Australia," agency spokesman Andreas Schuetz said. "The satellite is still orbiting and we are observing the data for other parts of the world," he added."

      That just might work... big_smile

      It's interesting checking all the news sources. They are all duplicates of each other, each copying and pasting from one original source.

    ABC News just republished a 2-week-old (?) report. What total slackers....

  13. paradigmsearch profile image89
    paradigmsearchposted 6 years ago

    "A defunct satellite hurtled through the atmosphere and into Earth, the German Aerospace Center said early Sunday.

    Pieces of the ROSAT scientific research satellite hit between 1:45 and 2:15 UTC (between 9:45 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. EDT Saturday), the agency said."

    And then the article appears to contradict itself.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44992707/ns … qOI-qW-fZs

    If it did fall, they apparently still do not know where.
