The Spy is Falling

The Washington Post reports that a large spy satellite weighing roughly five tons has lost power and propulsion and is falling from the sky.

Where will it land? Nobody knows. But, don’t worry...

NASA successfully deorbited the 78-ton Skylab in 1979. It is now at the bottom of the Indian Ocean, prolly pumping more mercury into our seafood...

Also, in 2000, NASA successfully deorbited the 17-ton Compton Gamma Ray Observatory. It now sits somewhere in the Pacific, but after giving a bunch of surfers some rad waves.

But what about this spy satellite that can’t be controlled? Well, just rest assured the government is keeping their eyes on it.

And wherever it falls... we are sure that FEMA will show up to move the survivors into trailers where they can wait several years for something to happen.
