"A Siberian man had a piece of a Russian satellite crash through his home after a system failure sent both the communication satellite and its rocket plummeting back to the Earth's surface. Andrei Krivorukov, the homeowner, went out to his yard minutes before the crash to gather firewood. A fragment of a Meridian satellite then crashed through his roof while he remained outside unharmed." (12/26/11)
