    Tons of defunct satellite debris falling toward Earth

    A defunct satellite has entered the atmosphere, the German Aerospace Center reported Sunday morning. "There is currently no confirmation if pieces of debris have reached Earth's surface," it said.

    Up to 30 pieces of space debris could hit land or water.

    Europe, Africa and Australia appeared to be out of the path of the Roentgen Satellite, the agency said late Saturday. It was not immediately clear where the satellite entered the atmosphere.

    "The largest single fragment will probably be the telescope's mirror, which is very heat resistant and may weigh up to 1.7 tons," according to the German Aerospace Center.

    Yeah laugh now but when all that shit from Japan hits your shore, it wont be funny. Maybe, if its got anything from them nuke plants that went under you canspot it at night.

    Japan tsunami debris headed towards U.S., may offer grisly finds on shore
