Old American Satellite May Fall Down on Moscow

American Space Agency warns that Moscow is within the radius of falling of the old American research satellite UARS’ fragments, Interfax reports.
       However, as the NASA message mentions, “it is too early to say what areas of the planet may be affected by the falling fragments, the dispersion area of which will make about 500 kilometers”.
       It is informed that NASA suggested cleaning from the orbit the waste satellite, which is over 10 meters large and weighs over six tons and length, by means of one of its shuttles, but the plans were not fulfilled.
       In addition to that, the American satellite was destroyed by a fragment of the old Soviet satellite Kosmos-1275" which, in turn, was also damaged in collision with some space garbage back in 1981.
