NASA's space junk lands out west, Montrealers safe

Posted by Margot / September 24, 2011

In case you were worried to go outside for the last night of Pop Montreal, you can rest easy: that huge bus-sized mass of metal that NASA's been warning us about for a few days landed safely outside Calgary sometime around midnight (poutine time) last night. Given that they had calculated a 1 in 3200 chance of it hitting a human, it's pretty amazing that nobody was hurt.

Guess I'll just have to hold out for getting hit by lightning or winning the lottery now (that's how statistics work, right?)

Exactly the same building, but clarely upgraded having most of its windows replaced and/or reconfigured, others removed entirely (such as the first-storey ones on the west side), not to mention the added siding material which covers the original bricks. In any event, the long-standing adjacent buildings confirm the location.
