Good news, everyone. The sky is no longer falling. After days of speculation and suspense over where a European satellite would land, the spacecraft came crashing down to Earth Sunday evening.
The one-ton satellite was a European Space Agency project called the Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer, or GOCE. (Via CNN)
It could take a while for NORAD to calculate exactly where the satellite landed, but the BBC reports it was likely somewhere along a path between East Asia and Antarctica.
