#1 That reminds me...the Skylab crash & Esperance shire council having a dig at NASA for scatter space junk over the town, sending them a $400 fine for littering, which they never paid.

#2 "Likely to Hit Northern U.S. States" is a bit exaggerated. Northern U.S. States lie in a zone that is a bit more likely to experience a possible impact.

Funny enough, this zone also includes North Korea

#3 Actually, since we funded it, it should fall to earth here. At least we'll be getting something back for our money.

#9 Is it too late to give the descending piece of space junk the coordinates of Zero's mansion?

#10 We should claim it'll hit the US, then nuke it over China:p It's the only way to be sure.
