Man-Made "STAR' to Plummet to Earth Tomorrow, Months Earlier Than Expected

Recommended Posts

It seems all good things must come to an end, including space disco parties. After drifting through space for mere months, the man-made Humanity Star is expected to plunge back down to Earth in a fiery descent. The glittering satellite, referred to by some as a 'beacon for all humanity,' was launched into orbit in January and slated to orbit the Earth for about nine months. Now, it seems the object is making an early exit. It's likely to reenter Earth's atmosphere in less than 14 hours, according to Rocket Lab, the New Zealand-based company behind the Humanity Star.

Well I never expected this..... This throws a spanner into what I was expecting. Will need to wait on the color of this and what happens. Note it may drop on a 22 date also.

We also have the tiangong-1 about to drop also. about 11 days they say... for that.

Looks at the ceiling and says, don't you dare come through my attic. 

It passes over me in 6 hours :)

Hmmm...the "beacon for all humanity" at that. Beyond the dates, colors, etc. that alone sounds a little ominous.

"Tick Tock"?  Maybe it should've been called the Hannity Star.  :D
