Fly Fishing: Evening Bite & Space Junk

Dr. Kaku's Universe @ Big Think (Michio Kaku)

Apparently, fly fishers in the Western Hemisphere are probably safe, at least in the Northern half of that hemisphere. But, anywhere else, if you are standing there fishing, you can probably rest assured you are  safe, although that 10-300# chunk of junk may create a noise as it hits the water or trees behind you. Make sure you collect that chunk, if feasible.

————————–

“Since the dawn of the Space Age, no one has been injured by falling space debris. The only confirmed case of a person being hit by space junk was in 1997 when Lottie Williams of Tulsa, Okla., was grazed in the shoulder by a small bit of debris from a discarded piece of a Delta rocket.

The odds of someone somewhere on Earth getting struck by the NASA satellite are one in 3,200. But any one person’s odds are astronomically lower— one in 21 trillion.

“You’re way more likely to be hit by lightning” than by the satellite, Mr. McDowell said.

The U.S. tracks the roughly 22,000 pieces of satellites, rockets and other junk orbiting the Earth”  WSJ
