Good LORD — how did I miss that???

Power System Failure Eyed in US Military Satellite Explosion. On February 3rd…WTF was I doing on Feb 3rd (or the next few days) that I missed a satellite exploding? Sigh…my apologies.

DMSP orbits in a sun-synchronous orbit with an altitude of about 450 km.

How can a satellite just blow up like this? After 20 years in orbit? Something doesn’t smell right…but that’s all I’ll say here.
