Stephen Colbert Discusses the NASA Satellite That May or May Not Fall on You Sometime Today

Have you heard about this whole falling satellite thing? NASA tells us that a satellite is going to fall from space... somewhere... sometime today or tomorrow-ish. But don't worry about having time to get out of danger! As Stephen Colbert points out, "In addition to providing a 28-hour impact window across a 118 million-square-mile danger zone, NASA is providing a 20-minute warning before the satellite strikes." So we're golden!

Watch the funny (and, not gonna lie, kind of scary) clip below:
