The Goce satellite fell to Earth, burning up in the atmosphere. Some parts of the device may have fallen along Eastern Asian and the Western Pacific. there have been no reports of injury.

It is part of the European Space Agency’s (ESA) fleet of satellites.

The machine was nicknamed ‘Ferrari of Space’ because of its super sleek design.

Goce, short for Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Explorer, was launched in 2009 with the job of researching the environment.

It was designed to plunge to Earth once its fuel ran out.

Scientists say most of it would have burnt up in the Earth’s atmosphere, but any surviving debris could have fallen somewhere along a path through East Asia and the Western Pacific to Antarctica.

    This is why WE NEW ZEALANDERS don’t listen/accept any requests from the U.S.A/America!! We need more Newzealnders who stand out take pride in our country! Everyone thinks that we are a small country with a small population, and yes that is true! but we aren’t small in our hearts we need people to hear us out !!!!
