Sorry, that picture’s a bit over the top, in fact completely over the top. I got it from searching for Deep Impact on Google images.
But anyway, there is a satellite speeding towards earth as we speak and it is set to hit earth Friday (tomorrow) night. The Satellite is property of Nasa, five tonnes in weight and over 20 years old. It recently ‘fell out of it’s orbit’ (as satellites do) and is now en route towards us.
NASA have said that the satellite won’t pass over North America but there’s a chance it will pass over Britain when it re-enters our atmosphere.
Here’s a picture from the BBC website of the satellite and a picture of the earth with some lines over it, I presume that’s it’s the satellite’s path.
Here’s a video of a white blob that is meant to be the satellite hurting towards earth:
Sleep well. In fact check out this picture of a cute puppy spooning a cute kitten, it’ll make you feel better: Dog Spoons Cat
