NASA satellite crashes to earth, crashes probably in Sweden!
The U.S. space agency NASA will take a research satellite into disuse. It is expected to crash to Earth within the next few days (end of September 2011). According to the latest estimates, it is likely that it crashes somewhere in Västra Götaland in Sweden.

My recommendation is therefore to look out:)
There is also a Youtube video what the satellite was intended in their lifetime.
