In Kutaisi, they argue that fragments of NASA satellite have fallen there2011-09-26 18:26
Residents of Kutaisi argue that over the weekend fragments of NASA satellite have fallen on their land. As reported by Trend, at least, this was said by the local family of Gersamiya. Members of this family found some metal fragments in their yard. Initially the places where they fell were burned out - that's why they suggested this was fragments of the space satellite.
Specialists of the local observatory of the Ministry of Environment of Georgia have already studied the fragments for radioactivity. No radiation from the fragments was found. Nevertheless, the study of unknown subjects continues.
The origin of the metal is not clear yet. However, experts believe that fragments of the U.S. satellite that has fallen in the area of Canada, could not appear in Georgia.
Recall, research satellite UARS weighing 6.5 tons dedicated for studying the upper atmosphere, he worked in orbit for 14 years. In 2005 it was decommissioned and turned into "sleep" mode. According to NASA, the falling satellite has not completely burn up in the atmosphere. About 26 fragments of a total weight a little over 500 pounds must have reached the Earth.
