Old NASA satellite tumbling to Earth Fri. or Sat.

A dead 6-ton satellite isn't falling as fast as NASA expected.

NASA's experts are now predicting the satellite will crash down to Earth late Friday or early Saturday, Eastern Time. Solar activity is no longer the major factor in the satellite's descent. Rather, its orientation apparently has changed, and that's slowing its fatal plunge.

The story is too old to be commented.
