If you live in north-eastern United States, Canada, Scandinavia, Scotland or northern Russia, you are probably safe.

If not, there is a 1 in 3,200 chance that by the end of the day you will be hit by a chunk of satellite weighing up to 158kg that is expected to plummet to earth this evening.

Don't worry too much though; you've got more chance of winning the lottery. Actually, that's not true, you've got much less chance of winning the lottery.

The odds of you personally getting hit are not 1 in 3,200. There are 2.4 billion people in India and China (both are not on the safe list). If these odds were for individuals, that would mean that statistically, 750,000 people in those two countries alone are going to get hit.

1 in 3,200 seems a bit off.

Unless of course this satelite is the size of France or something.
