You have to take into account that 1 in 2000 chance is based on the entire population for the fall zone,to get your actual odds of being hit yourself,you need to times the population of affected area by 2000/population X 2000 =your odds of getting hit.

Does anyone know if these satellites where launched at roughly the same time?seems odd that they are falling within such a close time spacing.Maybe they collided with each other or some debris.

More like it's so good it can survive re-entry.

Yeah that's crazy, and they were testing the theory of the earth's atmosphere igniting (and in that case no more earth), I can't believe how reckless our government has been/is.

It would have been pretty epic if it did work though. For the first 3-5 seconds then everyone would have died of radiation.

I wouldn't believe the story if the Daily Mail has printed it. It's a notorious paper in Britain for scaremongering the mindless middle class people in this country. I swear one day they'll print the sky is falling on the front page.

I think they might have already done that.
