Satellites Destroyed in Orbital Collision
A commercial satellite owned by a U.S. company was destroyed in a collision with a defunct Russian military satellite in what NASA said was the first such accident in orbit, raising new concerns about the dangers of space debris.

The crash, which happened Tuesday in low-earth orbit, involved one of the satellites owned by closely held Iridium Satellite LLC and a crippled Russian military satellite that apparently stopped functioning years ago, according to U.S. government and satellite-industry officials.

The collision created two large clouds of debris floating roughly 480 miles above Siberia, and prompted space scientists and engineers to assess the likelihood of further collisions.

The lower the satellites orbit, the thicker the atmosphere they encounter. The thicker the atmosphere the greater the friction. The greater the friction the faster the satellites decelerate. The faster these satallites (or remnants thereof) decellerate, the sooner they fall to earth.

"....the Russian craft as a Cosmos series satellite launched in 1993, weighing more than a ton and including an onboard nuclear reactor..."

Oops! Sounds expensive.
They say that there is only a very small chance of bits falling to earth but I wonder if the debris will whizz round until drawn in by gravity and land somewhere?
