There's an interesting story over on SpaceWeather.com today. A defunct upper-stage rocket in Earth orbit sprung a fuel leak and exploded two days ago producing a cloud of debris. Observers in Australia watched it unfold. Why does this kind of stuff always seem to happen over Australia? Well, if it was here it would probably would have been cloudy.
