Yeah, but the Iridium satellite was probably talking on the phone, not paying attention to the road ahead of it.
I'm sure this was totally an accident. Totally. There's no possibility at all that Iridium 33 shook hands with Russia's 'defunct' cold war era military satellite. Zero chance.Really.
Iridium used to belong to the bin Laden family. Just to wrap some tinfoil on the hat...
Actually 800km is 2,624,671.92 feet. It's that extra 5,000 yards that made the difference. So much for the "Big sky, little bullet" theory of air control.TCLeatherneck
With all those bottles & cans floating in orbit, I'm surprised this doesn't happen all of the time.I'm surprised on how many takeoffs and landings aren't fragged by the flak of hitting the debris.
Only a few more years until Planetes is a reality!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planetes
It was a defunct (out-of-work) Russian satellite...naturally it was drunk and suicidal.
