NASA says the satellite is likely to begin re-entry on September 23, 2011, give or take a day. Hurtling at five miles (eight kilometers) per second, they say it could land anywhere between 57 degrees N. latitude and 57 degrees S. latitude – basically, most of the populated world.That's a really imprecise estimate! As the article notes, it basically leaves out only Santa and penguins. I hope this prediction did not cost very much.
