Heads up folks, and I really mean it. The Chinese launched a rocket the other day and the main engine got into a very low orbit. It wasn't suppose to do that. So, it is coming back down to earth. The problem, no one can say were or when. Reports are Saturday, but it is still unknown where it will hit.

So keep an eye on the news, any news, just in case it lands in a neighborhood near you.

PS: Skylab was the first measurement of Solar irradiance outside of Earth's atmosphere and our reference point.

So the Chinese Junk ship looks like this; returning from space...I don’t understand what the problem is? I’m pretty sure it’ll burn up on reentry. Those are pretty impressive solar cells though. Looks like fun on the water.
