Last observation regarding the carcass altitude satellite Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) from Earth, the global is now within 170 KM or 20 km closer than the distance that was launched yesterday LAPAN ie 190 KM.
“Although the distance is getting closer, but until now UARS is still uncertain exactly when fall. Indeed, the range of uncertainty is less and less. Most likely will fall within approximately 15 hours from now,” said Thomas Jamaluddin, Chairman LAPAN, when contacted Legal, Friday (09/23/2011).
Range collapse of a dead satellite in the Earth’s surface is expected to hit several areas ranging from the Pacific to the African continent. But Thomas insisted the greatest potential is in the Earth’s surface with a range of 57 degrees north latitude and 57 degrees south latitude.
“Monitoring at the last carcasses LAPAN UARS satellite as it passes over the surface of Indonesia seen since at 3:38 pm with a distance of 191 KM, then at 5:06 pm is 190 KM. And this afternoon at approximately 16:05 pm located at a distance of 179 KM , while at 17:34 pm will be within 176 KM UARS, “he explained.
Thomas reveals UARS estimates arrived at the Earth’s surface will occur tomorrow morning at approximately 7:42 pm.
“All the islands in Indonesia from Sabang to Marauke great potential as a landing place UARS. But the possibility of falling on the surface of Earth is very small with a ratio of 1:3200. People still asked to be vigilant and immediately report to relevant authorities if they find pieces of UARS for later studied further, “he concluded.
