According to German space agency the 21 year old Roentgen Satellite, or ROSAT, that reentered Earth’s atmosphere on Saturday (October 22) at 9:50 p.m. EDT (0150 GMT Sunday, October 23), came down over the Bay of Bengal in the northeast Indian Ocean. Until now it isn’t known whether any fragments of the 2.7-ton satellite reached Earth’s surface after its fiery trip through the atmosphere. The debris was expected to fall over a 50-mile (80-kilometer) track of the Earth’s surface. ROSAT was launched in June 1990 to conduct an all sky survey with its X-ray telescope. The spacecraft was officially shut down in February 1999. ROSAT’s fall came about a month after a defunct NASA climate satellite also fallen to Earth at the end of its life.
NASA’s Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, or UARS, reentered the atmosphere on September 24 and plunged into the Pacific Ocean, well away from the North American coastline.
