    I saw this on MSNBC on the news and they posted an article, this is sad... Because it is real NOT a joke :(

    Satellite could contain hazardous materials; U.S. secrets at risk

    If they're using any Microsoft products -- they're used to it. It means it'll just crash for the last time.

    I read the story and it states this isn't the first time this has happend. So hopefully they will continue to moniter the situation and "fix" the problem as in the past.

    There are over 7,000 man-made objects in orbit around planet Earth, most of which will eventually re-enter the atmosphere and burn up.

    The news article is hype and put up only for attention grabbing purposes.

    I remember twenty years ago watching Russian rocket boosters burn up as they came back into the atmosphere; really beautiful and neat!

    What goes up must eventually come down!

    Maybe we should invite the Chinese to just blow it up, like they did one of our older satellites a year ago?

    Hmmm, you know now that I think about it... With the Chinese anti-satellite weaponry being advanced enough to destroy a satellite in space, it makes you wonder how a US spy satellite just mysteriously loses power...
