Now It's A German Satellite Coming Down

Now it's a German satellite that's going to fall back to Earth, late this month or early in November -- 30 pieces collectively weighing 1.6 (metric) tons. As usual, officials are saying they can't predict where it will land, but they put the odds that a human will be hit at 1-in-3200 and repeat that no one has ever been hit by falling space debris.

Who wants to bet that, with the way the world is going, this thing lands somewhere in Greece?
