Quote
ESA announced on 12 April 2012 that they lost contact with Envisat since Sunday, 8 April 2012.

...

...2 catalogued objects can be expected to pass within about 200 metres (660 ft) of Envisat every year, which would likely trigger the need for a maneuver to avoid a possible collision.[11]

A drifting satellite as big as Envisat is more than just a huge space wreck: in case of collision, given its mass, volume and shape, it might generate a cloud of smaller debris large enough to populate the orbit, initiating a self-sustaining chain-reaction of collisions and fragmentation with production of new debris. This phenomenon, known as the Kessler Syndrome, would eventually make space operations difficult or even impossible, and may prevent access to space to future human generations.

Get your GPS apps finished and paid for soon lads.

ISS now has a live stream feed showing earth - just started up a couple of weeks ago.  I can actually stream it to my HDTV thru the ipad so have a earth watch screensaver - as such.

And this is what you get to see. Pretty cool.
