Most of it burns up – ESA satellite crashes to Earth on Wednesday

Based on data collected on Monday, ESA’s Space Debris Office is currently predicting that ERS-2 will re-enter the atmosphere at 20:24 CET on Wednesday. The uncertainty in this forecast is now only +/- 9.91 hours, it said. This uncertainty is mainly due to the influence of unpredictable solar activity, which influences the density of the Earth’s atmosphere and thus the air resistance of the satellite.
