Euro Gravity Sat GOCE Landed SOMEWHERE Overnight

Euro Gravity Sat GOCE Landed SOMEWHERE Overnight

Submitted by • November 11, 2013 www.theregister.co.uk

The European Space Agency (ESA) has kindly let the planet know that the Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer – GOCE – has re-entered earth's atmosphere without incident. The demise of the craft was expected because it ran out of fuel in October, but there was one little problem: nobody knew where it would land.
