The Upper Atmospheric Research Satellite, deployed Sept. 12 1991 from the Space Shuttle Discovery, was decomissioned today. It's last good battery shorted out in August and planning to end the mission went as planned and concluded today with the shutting down of the satellite. Last week, a several-minute burn lowered the orbit of the satellite.

It is expected to make an uncontrolled reentry in 2008 or 2009. UARS opened a wealth of understanding on the upper and lower atmospheric layers including monitoring the ozone layer.

Orbit is now 184 x 195 km, deccreasing at 9 and 13 km per day. The end is near
