I reckon ULA had something to show in their booth at Satellite 2013.

That show hasn’t had anything exciting for years. In fact, their site still has videos from 2012. Ironically, their slogan is “Bridging the Gap between Today and Tomorrow.”

Close your eyes, imagine you’re living in 2003 again. Now, open them and look at the conference program. Feels like 10 years ago, huh?

Your gap is off.

It was bound to happen, sooner or later. One of the thousands of pieces of debris from the Chinese missile test from 2007 in LEO dabbed the Russian Ball Lens In The Space (BLITS) and threw it off

The apparent destruction of a small Russian satellite six weeks ago highlights the growing threat space junk poses to activities in low-Earth orbit, experts say.

The satellite and space junk crash involved Russia’s Ball Lens In The Space nanosatellite, or BLITS, which likely collided on Jan. 22 with a piece of orbital debris spawned by a 2007 Chinese anti-satellite test, reported on March 8. The event adds another name to the list of spacecraft that have had run-ins with space junk.
