Dear Trevor, CNN are available here along with ABC, NBC, Fox, NASA channel
and every other media outlet on planet earth. (p.s. thanks to Al Gore, we
will now even be able to watch terrorist beheadings in real time)

Why, why, then, do you need to post every single fart that occurs more than
500 feet AGL anywhere on earth?

In the name of Jesus Christ, please, please give it a break with your serial
posting !!!

If this gets me kicked off the AMSAT reflector, so be it, but someone has to
say it

Subject: [amsat-bb] Satellite hit by debris from weapon test

CNN are reporting the BLITS satellite was rendered inoperable after being
impacted by debris from a 2007 weapon test.


Wiki says the weapon test created 2,317 pieces of trackable size (golf ball
size and larger) and an estimated 150,000 debris particles so there's
clearly potential for more impacts.
