When Satellites Collide

In the first, but probably not the last accident of this type, a commercial Iridium satellite for world-wide telephone communications and a defunct Russian relay-station satellite have collided above Northern Siberia yesterday. According to U.S. STRATCOM, which monitors over 18,000 space objects, the 600 pieces of debris do not appear to be an immediate threat for the International space station.
