A satellite may be falling apart in geostationary orbit

https://arstechnica.com/science/2017/07 ... ary-orbit/

Yikes, here's hoping geostationary orbit doesn't get ruined because then Earth would be all kinds of screwed. It could be a proof-of-concept satellite kill from a foreign power. Perhaps it was broken up by debris from a spy satellite which was killed on the sly. Or just a meteor hitting a satellite.

Quote:
It is not clear what might have caused the AMC-9 satellite to become unresponsive, begin drifting, and apparently begin to break apart. A spokesman for the satellite operator SES, Markus Payer, did not return a request for comment on Saturday evening from Ars.

SpaceX scores contract to launch Air Force’s secretive X-37B spaceplane

https://www.theverge.com/2017/6/7/15751 ... h-contract

How secret is this craft if we know about it? If the payload is secret, why would they trust a private corporation?

Quote:
SpaceX has scored one of its biggest contracts yet with the US Air Force: launching the military’s secretive X-37B spaceplane on top of the company’s Falcon 9 rocket. The mission, set to happen sometime in August, will be the first one SpaceX does for the Air Force, as the company continues to break into the market of launching military spacecraft.
