What a load of rubbish

Freighter to end life in fireball
By Jonathan Amos
Science reporter, BBC News

Europe's biggest, most sophisticated spaceship is about to bring its six-month mission to an end by plunging into the Pacific in a ball of flames.

The "Jules Verne" freighter undocked from the space station three weeks ago packed with rubbish and will take its unwanted cargo into a destructive dive.

Most of vehicle is expected to burn up in the atmosphere; only fragments will make it down to the ocean water...

Don't tell US Strategic Command that the 1,400lb fridge hidden in the rubbish has a planned to re-enter the atmosphere just above a ranch in Crawford, shit if they can FF their own with chunks of a Delta II rocket then it's time for some one-upmanship.
