Satellite Could Crash in Connecticut

Apparently a dead U.S. spy satellite could crash in Connecticut. Federal authorities have warned state first responders on handling the potential crash.

According to the AP, the Navy hopes to shoot it down before the satellite hits land.

If they miss... I fear what could happen... like the beginning of a crappy sit-com.

Well, like we haven't been through this before

Are you old enough to recall the Skylab recovery project?
The 82 tonne Skylab space station re-entered the Earth's atmosphere on 11th July 1979 and parts of it hit the Earth in Western Australia. Many large pieces were retrieved. Skylab had been launched on 14th May 1973 and was visited by three 3-man crews.
