    Satellite could plummet to Earth

    A "large" US spy satellite has gone out of control and is expected to crash to Earth some time in late February or March, government sources say.

    Wheres this one going to fall I wonder .


    The agency notes that the largest uncontrolled re-entry by a US space agency (Nasa) craft was Skylab, a 78-tonne abandoned space station that fell from orbit in 1979. Its debris dropped harmlessly into the Indian Ocean and across a remote section of western Australia, the US news agency says.
