In case you hadn't heard, NASA has plans to kill some of us this weekend. A 12,500-pound satellite has fallen out of orbit and is expected to splinter into 26 pieces during re-entry. Those pieces could spread out in a 500-mile path that will crash somewhere in North America. Which sucks because I live there.

NASA seems confident that the risks to human life are extremely small. However, if movies have taught me anything it is that satellites can be extremely dangerous. They can be used to cripple world economies, spy on Will Smith, and even raise the dead. So, please enjoy your last moments on Earth with these 5 movie satellites that could kill us all.

Scoop VII - The Andromeda Strain

The Andromeda Strain points out the inherent dangerous side effect of sending something into space. Namely, Space Rabies. When the Scoop VII satellite crashes into a New Mexico town, it brings a deadly virus with it referred to as The Andromeda Strain. Great. I'm worried enough about Earth viruses. Am I going to have to worry about alien ones now too?

Unnamed Satellite - Night Of The Living Dead

Okay. If the idea of a space virus sounds far-fetched, how about the much more realistic possibility of harmful radiation from space? Could happen, right? In the case of Night of the Living Dead, harmful radiation from a downed satellite causes the Earth's dead to rise from their graves and begin eating the living. Which I really hope can't happen and doesn't happen this weekend. I have plans to go see the Descendents.

SkyLab - Wet Hot American Summer

A piece of NASA's SkyLab (the original space junk) threatens the campers at Camp Firewood. Luckily, an astrophysics associate professor from the local college is on the scene and shows the campers how to build a device that will protect them from certain doom. However, it's unclear whether or not SkyLab returned with any space viruses that raise the dead. But I kinda hope it did. That would be an awesome sequel.

The GoldenEye Satellite - GoldenEye

This is a different case of how satellites can actually be used against us. When an arms syndicate gets their hands on control disks for the dual GoldenEye satellites, they use them to cripple targets by hitting them with an electromagnetic pulse. The ultimate plan is to steal from the Bank of England before erasing all records and completely destroying Britain's economy. It can also be used to turn off your neighbor's television during his favorite program.

Surveillance Satellites - Enemy of the State

A corrupt politician is hellbent to initiate a new system of surveillance satellites that can see anyone, anywhere. When evidence against the politician is planted on Will Smith, he has his team of NSA slackers retask satellites to spy on him and ruin his life. With his every move being watched, he finds that there's no place he is safe. Not even at his aunt's mansion in Bel Air.
