    A reporter sent me the following
    I saw your posting online about UARS releasing some debris. I'm a reporter at the Daily Press in
    Newport News , Va. , where I cover NASA Langley Research Center , which had one of the instruments
    (HALOE) on UARS. I heard about the satellite getting hit by something from some of the scientists
    here, and it just seemed like an interesting story, i.e., from a layman's perspective, how often
    does this happen? Does it happen to active satellites?
    I sent hin a reply, for others who might want to reply to him
    contacted him at
    His name is Patrick Lynch
    He will be out of the office, until Dec 28
