This was why the UARS
fell faster than scientists initially expected.
However, once again, like UARS
, no one has a clue as to where the thing is likely to tumble.
As it fell to Earth, UARS
passed from the east coast of Africa over the Indian Ocean, then the Pacific Ocean, across northern Canada and the northern Atlantic Ocean to a point over West Africa.
The reentry of UARS
this evening is consistent with the modeling we prepared at Aerospace," Ailor added.
The inglorious end of the UARS
and the cost collectively leave NASA at an embarrassing corner in the arena of space exploration.
Large spacecraft, like the 35-foot long, 15-foot diameter (10-6-metres long, 4.5-metres diameter) UARS
, fall back to Earth about once a year.
"But people are not as aware of UARS
since it is not as well quantified by research findings" as obstructive sleep apnea is.
It appears that the nose might play a significant role in the development of UARS
. The nasal obstruction associated with allergic rhinitis has been found to fragment sleep and significantly increase the incidence of microarousals.
is part of a program to study the upper atmosphere and any changes in it caused by human or natural influences.
On the basis of data gathered by the agency's Upper Atmospheric Research Satellite (UARS
), they find hydrogen fluoride -- a CFC by-product that has no natural source -- present with chlorine in the stratosphere.
General Electric's Astro Space Div has applied a rotary-positioning table engineered by Eimeldingen Corp as part of NASA's Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS
London, Sept 28 (ANI): The US space agency has revealed that any surviving remnants of the NASA's UARS
satellite that recently re-entered Earth's atmosphere fell into the southern Pacific Ocean, far from major landmass.
