A 30-year old uncontrolled satellite is going to crash back to earth on Wednesday. Shall we try and guess where?

I’d be OK with Pyongyang or Moscow.

This is a bigger one than usual, and no fuel left to control it. Where will it land?

The China Sea. ;-)

How about dead center in Moscow like you said.

It’ll probably land in an ocean. Most of it will burn up in the atmosphere and only small pieces will reach the Earth.

I am disconcerted by the apparent bloodlust of our contributors, who gleefully imagine it landing in populated civilian areas, which happen to be capitals of official Western enemy nations.

^I said the China Sea, not a populated area, as a play on my name.

@Kropotkin it’s called multitasking. If you can destroy a satellite and a dictator at the same time, it’s a win for everyone.

I’m going to place my bet on the Pacific Ocean.

Oh, an actual satellite. I thought someone was reminding me of my checkered past.

I live in a forest, so hopefully not nearby.
It will probably fall in the Pacific.
I hope it will be on the Kremlin.

I do believe that it finally splashed down in the Pacific Ocean somewhere between Alaska & Hawaii with NOBODY hurt!!!
