Big, dead European satellite will come crashing back to Earth this month



A dead European satellite will come crashing back to Earth later this month, in a fiery death dive that its handlers will monitor carefully.

The incoming spacecraft is the European Space Agency‘s (ESA) European Remote Sensing 2 (ERS-2) satellite, which launched to Earth orbit in April 1995 and wrapped up its Earth-observing duties in September 2011.
