The failed Russian Mars probe is due to crash back down to Earth as early as January next year.

Telegraph said:

A Russian space probe weighing almost as much as two double-decker buses is set to come crashing back to Earth in the New Year.

it appears russia thought we were hiding something about mars, so they decided to take it in there own hands. so we made sure it never left orbit. BWAHAHAHA!!! looks like we'll be the only ones with access to mars atm. oh how thrilling -_- lets leave it in the hands of our trustworthy government to let us know when they've found life. YIPPIE

I hope it lands in Russia, it's their mess. They should tidy it up!

If they know it's coming down why not use the opportunity to intercept it and cause it to crash where they want it to?  Just an idea.

The Chinese shot down one of their own satellites in 2010 I think, so this should be an easy target.

Blowing up the satelite without control will contribute snificantly to the space junk orbiting Earth, causing more hazard for manned missions and international space station.

A man's ethical behaviour should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death. - Albert Einstein

That was in 2007 they pulled that stunt. But they didn't shoot down the satellite, they blew it up. You can't shoot something that is in space, you can only blow it up. The difference is huge. They managed to create a huge debris field, which i still circling around in orbit, posing as a danger to other vehicles in space.

My mistake :unsure2:
I wonder if there is any case law on torts related to space junk. :unsure2:

No worries :)

I doubt there is any case law, but I could obviously be wrong. Even if that was the case, I doubt it would be possible to pry anything out of the Chinese or the Russians in a civilian court case, although they might pay restitution if approached on a Government level (pure speculation on my behalf - I honestly have no idea of what I speak :P)
