This topic might be a better place to put this.  Has anybody seen it?

I'm almost afraid to ask does anyone know what became of this object?

As far as I know, it's still on its way.  This could be the one the Russians claim is under "intelligent control." (in a message to the Pope.) I'll search for all that if you wish

Wow, big CNN news story at http://newspulse.cnn.com/ about the discovery of 16 "super earths" found outside of our solar system.  They were also talking about the satellite(?) that is about to crash to earth though I couldn't find the link for that.  It was a rather detailed report, and they said you do have a better chance of getting hit by it than you would of winning the lottery????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will continue to look for more info on that.

Sorry, searched and searched the cnn website, couldn't find anything more about the incoming space debris/junk, guess that's not that important???????????????Everybody keep a "heads up" I guess....They hadn't narrowed it down real good as far as where it would hit.

wow, do they say where it will be coming down. Hopefully in the ocean, or some where not populated. I wonder if we'll be able to see it in the sky.
Stay informed, information is our first line of defense!

Sorry, I only caught a portion of the audio on the report.  I tend to keep CNN on all day when I'm home, but usually on mute.  If I see something of interest, I unmute.  Hence, my unfortunately incomplete post.  There was some information on this incoming object in another thread, but I couldn't locate it when I went to post my info, and this one seemed the most appropriate.  The original information I believe, and someone please correct me if I'm way off, was that it could span a very, very large area of earth north and south of the equator.  They seem to be handling this very nonchalantly in my opinion.  Like, Hey watch out above, incoming space debris, sorry, hope we don't kill too many people or destroy too much property, can't be helped or avoided...gotta love NASA and the news media.

Yes they are, BUT they are talking about it in their own way.

hmmm - couldn't find info on the satellite coming down, but dish networks lost service to a bunch of customers today due to a "satellite anomoly" ... guess those solar flares are acting up a bit..
