Space Station to be Crashed in 2016?
"In the first quarter of 2016, we'll prep and de-orbit the spacecraft," says NASA's space station program manager, Michael T. Suffredini.
That's a polite way of saying that NASA will make the space station fall back into the atmosphere, where it will turn into a fireball and then crash into the Pacific Ocean. It'll be a controlled reentry, to ensure that it doesn't take out a major city. But it'll be destroyed as surely as a Lego palace obliterated by the sweeping arm of a suddenly bored kid.
The international space station
will be completed in 2010.To
crash it into the Pacific Ocean
6 years later is silly. The United

to plan and fund it for 20 more
years to give time to decide whether
to keep it up permanently. I does cost
a lot of money but it is important and
the costs can be shared by several
