Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) video
NASA now predicts its Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) will deorbit Friday, Sept. 23, 2011, United States time. Most of the spacecraft–the size of a school bus (5.7 metric tons)–will burn up in the atmosphere, although 26 pieces are expected to survive reentry.
AGI engineers used our software to create this video depicting:
· UARS in its current orbit
· Its potential debris area
· Burn-up at reentry
· A representative statistical breakup model
· UARS estimated debris region
