I’ve been keeping track of the news concerning the recent collision between that derelict Russian satelite and the American Iridium satelite. The news I read today seems to indicate that the conditions resulting from the collision could be more significant that I thought from earlier reports, especially given how busy the traffic is in that orbit band. Check it out yourself, here: “Space crash called ‘catastrophic,’ lots of debris.”
(And, frankly, I think most of the debris has landed directly in my living room. Oh, wait — that’s Lego. A LOT of Lego. So, did my kids cause that collision? So much to think about…)
P.S. For those headed to Joplin for the Family Weekend, we’ll see you there!
