    On November 13 a small chunk of junk, named WT1190f will crash into earth; origin seems to be unknown. No , not aliens. It is human-created space junk.

    Does anyone know more about the tracking asemblage they are inplementing from an existing plan - to keep close track on the object, and to test out the system?

    Here is a link that doesn't have a bunch of naked women on the bottom of the page. (Not that there is anything wrong with that)

    So far no one has mentioned that it will burn up on entry into the atmosphere. I guess I could have said re-entry
