GOCE Satellite Is Falling To Earth But Nobody Knows Where It Will Land

“The Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer or GOCE Satellite is expected to fall to Earth this weekend. It weighs over a ton and unfortunately the Scientists don’t exactly know where it will land. You can track it here. It should re-enter sometime betweenSunday night and Monday morning. Makr Hopkins, chair of the National Society’s Executive Committee said: ‘The satellite is one of the few satellites in a Polar Orbit. Consequently, it could land almost anywhere.’ The GOCE mission was to create an accurate gravity map of the Earth.”
