News Flash: Sandy UT proves to be a safe place to live.

Last evening saw the return of a selection of space junk.

After a fiery entry and a breakup into smaller pieces to ensure a shotgun effect the return of the debris proved to be a fizzer.

It missed us completely, all our citizenry, property and position were entirely untouched.

Local radio had reduced the odds of any specific person being hit from 1:21 trillion (haven't we heard of numbers of such magnitude in other fields recently) to 1:3000 of anyone getting hit.

Morning radio had the debris as being back but missing. So far there had been no complaints...

On July 11, 1979 Skylab crashed back to earth in a remote part of Western Australia (with great media build up). Had it landed in certain parts of Sydney, it would have been up on blocks with the wheels off before anyone realized.

In 1978 I was at Tidbinbilla Space Tracking Station outside Canberra, Australia where my group was advised by a scientist, that Skylab would return in a year, and that Western Australia had been chosen for the return site for safety and for ease of recovery. Someone must have forgotten to tell the Press.

Copious amounts of debris, no longer used space hardware continue to orbit the Earth, waiting for a chance to return for "what goes up must come down".

So with our unblemished record, for safety from returning debris, we invite you to make your home with us in Sandy UT. A great safe place to live.

LOL, Larry, that was cute.  I never did catch where they said everything actually fell - did you?

Lynn  - Chicken Little is a great response. Very mature (like cheese), it's as old as me (or almost). I remember as a five yr old of using (not successfully) that excuse for school playground bruises. I even remember the cartoon it came from.

Juli - me either. The story lost news value very quickly, replaced by which soap opera has been re-engineered to more accurately fit our lives.
