A one-ton satellite is expected to crash down to earth this weekend - but scientists don't know where.

The European Space Agency says the craft, which has been in low-Earth orbit since 2009, has run out of fuel, ending its mission.

It is expected to disintegrate on re-entry, with most of the fragments burning up in the atmosphere.

But around 20% of the satellite's mass - about 200kg - is expected to crash to earth in various fragments and it's impossible to predict where they will land.
