A large, dead European satellite will return to Earth this month

A dead European satellite will return to Earth later this month in a deadly dive that will be carefully monitored by its handlers.

The next spacecraft is ESA's European Remote Sensing Satellite 2 (ERS-2), which was launched into Earth orbit in April 1995 and completed Earth observation missions in September 2011.
