ABC News fail

Just posted this on Facebook:

ABC news just said the satellite that is going to deorbit next week is going to “burn up when it hits the scorching hot ring that surrounds the Earth.” Wow, they should not report science topics when they don’t know something as simple as why objects falling to Earth from space burn up.

Wanted to have it over here too for my own archive and because it is so amazing that they would say something so absolutely wrong.
