SPACE JUNK HIT IN WEST WALES!
Awoke today full of apprehension after hearing news that various bits of old satellites and space stations are about to enter the earth's atmosphere and make contact with terra firma (should that be terror firma?).
The Today programme news was less than helpful, they reassured their audience by stating that the fragments (some the size of a bus) would only weigh in the region of tens of hundreds of pounds when they hit earth.
Phew, for one minute I thought they might be dangerous!
And then...I looked out of my window only to see a large lump of twisted, rusty metal in our front drive! Goodness, (I thought), it didn't even wake me up.
And then I realised in the grey light of dawn; it was only my car.
