Andy Wells on the name give a piece of space junk that is hurtling toward the earth:
A piece of space junk that has been given the apt name of ‘WTF’ is heading straight for Earth – and will crash into us in less than a month.
No one seems to know exactly what the flying object actually is – hence the name – but they are in no doubt we are in its path.
All anyone is sure off is that it is about two metres wide and could be hollow inside – meaning it might be man-made.
The real name of the object is WT1190F.
