Space warning: Satellite is spiraling out of control above Earth

Recommended Posts

Spacecraft construction company SES says it lost control of its satellite on June 17 and is now struggling locate it.

SES’s AMC-9 satellite, which was 36,000 kilometres above the Earth’s surface, began spiralling out of control following a “significant anomaly”.

The company, which bills itself as a provider of “reliable and secure satellite and ground communications solutions”, said the satellite began breaking apart in the last few days.

So we are to expect this.... Well it was not what I assumed it would be.... But these metals in these satellites burn up certain color due to the composition of materials... Re-entry could give us quite a show.... A blue show! and with all the things ready to go.... Hell this is prophetic. Possible hopi blue star!

If it crashes near you, get there quick, the pieces are worth a lot on ebay. :D

That actually happened with space shuttle Columbia disaster. In about 6 hours after disintegrating on re-entry, pieces were being auctioned on ebay.

This is so sick, but I couldn't help but laugh. I need a shrink. :therapy:

It is not clear what might have caused the AMC-9 satellite to become unresponsive.

My question is, how do the satelites "spiral out of control" when they are in a perfect anti-grav field designed to orbit the earth?  Don't they just disintegrate, which is why we have tons of space junk floating around, according to Nassssssaaaaa.
