Drifting Satellite Threatens Lost
May 12, 2010 | In: gadget news
With the last season of Lost on TV this year, we know how much your cable means to you right now, which is why we’re at a loss to reveal that there might be some communication delays in the near future.
Apparently a TV communications satellite drifted out of control after a solar storm caused its systems to short out, and threatens to wander into another satellite’s orbit and disrupt cable programming across the United States. Ruhruoh.
On April 5, control of the Galaxy 15 satellite was lost and communication company Intelsat cannot remotely steer the satellite to remain in its orbit which could lead the little bugger straight for the satellite bringing you Lost next week.
More details as they come.
