(Newser) – A 2,000-pound European satellite ran out of fuel and is falling back to Earth, but nobody knows where or when it'll actually re-enter the Earth's atmosphere. The best guess is that it will come down in pieces tomorrow or Monday, though experts say the odds of anyone getting hurt are tiny. About 20% of the pieces are expected to make it to the ground, with the rest burning up in the atmosphere.
