UARS Satellite: Where Did Space Junk Land? Sep. 24, 2011 Crash
Where Did the UARS Satellite Land? Did It Crash on Land And Hit Anyone? Nope.
Many folks spent part of Friday night tracking the UARS satellite online or on TV. The satellite was slated to crash into earth sometime around September 24, 2011. Although the odds that anyone would actually get hurt by the satellite and the space junk it generated on re-entry, it garnered worldwide attention.
Where Exactly Did the UARS Satellite Land?
According to NASA, the UARS satellite fell somewhere in the Pacific Ocean, out of harm's way. The space debris was spread out " over a roughly 500-mile stretch across the northern portion of the Pacific." There are no reports that any space junk hit land.
There were parts that some space junk landed in Alberta, Canada but that proved to a hoax.
