+ - Satellite piece crashes through roof->

Submitted by PolygamousRanchKid
PolygamousRanchKid (1290638) writes "A Siberian resident miraculously escaped serious injury or even death when a fragment of a Russian communication satellite crashed through the roof of his house. A Meridian satellite that was launched Friday from the Plesetsk space centre in northern Russia on board a Soyuz-2 carrier rocket crashed near the Siberian city of Tobolsk minutes after lift-off.

A titanium ball of about five kg fell on to the roof of a house in Ordyn district.

The Meridian-series of communication satellites are used for both civilian and military purposes."
