Station Crew Takes Precautionary Measures Due to Space Debris
http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/main/
International Space Station Expedition 18 crew members are taking precautionary measures due to space debris that has been determined to be within the range where a collision is possible. News of the close approach came too late for flight controllers to coordinate an avoidance maneuver. A portion of a spent satellite motor is within the distance of the station's debris avoidance maneuver requirement "box."

Crew members are entering their Soyuz TMA-13 capsule and soft-locking the hatches, in case the debris should affect the space station and they are required to undock. The closure of the hatches ensures the safety of the crew and the ability to quickly depart the station in the unlikely event the debris collided with the station causing a depressurization.

The time of closest approach of the debris to the station is 12:39 p.m. EDT. Once the object is clear of the station, the crew will exit the Soyuz and reopen the hatches.

The crew will be in the Soyuz from 12:35-12:45 p.m. EDT. They will remain in the Soyuz until the debris risk has passed. Moving the crew into the Soyuz is a precaution, as the probability of impact is low. The crew is currently putting space station into an unmanned configuration, including several interior station


THIS WAS JUST ON CNN NEWS... TOLD YAH LAST NIGHT I SEEN ALL KINDS OF STUFF IN THE SKY ITS STILL GOING ON TODAY TOO :ohno:

3D SATELLITE DEBRIS: Regard the maps below. Cross your eyes until the two globes merge and voila!--you can see the remains of Cosmos 2251 and Iridium 33 in spellbinding 3D. (Having trouble? A larger pair may help.) Tom Wagner of Waterloo, Iowa, created the graphics. "John Burns supplied a KML file that in Google Earth shows where 217 pieces of Iridium 33 and 455 pieces of Cosmos 2521 were located on March 11th at 12:00 UT. Using Google Earth, I produced stereo pairs for cross-eyed viewing and also a red-blue anaglyph for 3D glasses."

"Note the three yellow dots," he points out. "Those are the pieces of Cosmos 2251 predicted to reenter the atmosphere [on March 12th, 28th and 30th]."

VIDEO UPDATE: Iridium 33 was not completely shattered by its collision with Cosmos 2251. A substantial "chunk" of the satellite's body held together, and it is now being seen in Earth orbit. Kevin Fetter video recorded the object as it tumbled across the sky over Brockville, Ontario, on March 11th: movie. An intact satellite, Iridium 28, follows Iridium 33 in the video. Note how one flashes and the other does not.

Oh dear, the bit about the debris in space is a bit worrying.
Have any of you guys seen 'The Killshot' by Major Ed Dames? He said the first sign we will have that the sh1t is about to hit the fan (in not so many words), is when a space mission gets aborted due to space debris.

Hold on to your seats :?
