ROSAT satellite- latest news

with one comment

From bbc/news:

“…Just as for Nasa’s UARS satellite, which plunged into the atmosphere in September, there was high uncertainty about the final moments of Rosat.
But if the timings are correct, any wreckage would probably have dived into the Indian Ocean – although no eyewitness reports have yet come in.
If anything did manage to make landfall, the likely areas to be affected would have been Myanmar and China….”
