When Satellites Colide

A collision occurred between a US Iridium 33 communications satellite and a defunct Russian Kosmos 2251 military satellite.

America is following the debris path from the impact. It is hoped that most of it will fall to Earth and burn up in the atmosphere.

A Nasa memo said officials determined the risk to be "elevated" but have estimated it as "very small and within acceptable limits".

Luckily only less than a hundred people should die and it should be in the Seberian region so who cares?

Iran who recently launched their own satellite refused to comment.
