UARS Update: Fall Zone Determined

Now, just hours before its scheduled fall, NASA has finally been able to pinpoint where the UARS satellite will be when it makes its uncontrolled plunge to Earth. Location: the satellite could fall over Canada, the Pacific Ocean, Australia, the Indian Ocean, or Africa. AS the fall time approaches, NASA may be able to narrow down the fall zone even more, but only time will tell.
