  1. A SIX-ton satellite is out of control and heading towards Earth – and Britain could be in the firing line. US space centre Nasa warned yesterday that the “dead” £470million satellite could land between 57 degrees north and 57 degrees south – anywhere between John O’Groats and the Falklands. Though much of the 35ft-long satellite will burn up on re-entry, as much as half a ton could survive. If it hits land, it could leave a trail of debris over 500 miles. Nasa’s orbital debris chief Gene Stansbery said: “Things have been re-entering ever since the dawn of the space age. To date nobody has been injured, but that doesn’t mean we’re not concerned.” The Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite was launched 20 years ago to help measure climate change. It ran out of fuel six years ago and is due to crash to earth in late September, early October.
