Cosmic Crash

Cosmic Crash

February 10, 2009 - It was on this day that two satellites slammed into each other 485 miles out in space.

One was a communications satellite in the Iridium constellation. The other was an old Russian satellite that had long since been retired. The two pieces of high technology collided at about 17,000 miles per hour.

Here's a cool video that shows an animated version of the cosmic crash:
