Weekend crash and burn expected...

The Upper Atmosphere Research Station is expected to come crashing down, scattering debris over a 500-mile path some time between 6 p.m. today and 4 a.m. Saturday morning. NASA officials say they believe the trajectory will not carry the satellite over North America at that time.

Solar activity affecting the density of Earth's atmosphere caused an unexpected acceleration in the descent of the satellite.
