We reported on the variables that make it hard to, even at this late date, predict exactly when and where a dead 6-ton NASA satellite will fall to Earth. The Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, or UARS, will be the biggest NASA spacecraft to crash back to Earth, but it's now baffling scientists as its descent toward Earth slows — delaying its ultimate crash until the early part of the weekend. The space agency is now predicting the satellite will crash down to Earth late Friday or early Saturday, Eastern Time.
Memorial services begin later today in commemoration of the life of former Ute Mountain Ute Chairman Ernest House Senior. The 65-year-old died last weekend in a motorcycle accident near his home in the Four Corners region.
