There are reports that an Iridium satellite has collided with a decommissioned Cosmos telecom satellite nearly 500 miles over Siberia. This is the first known case of a collision between satellites. Iridium has stated that the loss of the satellite has only a minimum affect on their system and a replacement satellite, already in orbit, will be moved to fill the gap within thirty days.
