Zombie satellite cured, brought back to life

Zombie satellite cured, brought back to life. Anthony Watts mentions something neutral! The unresponsive  telecommunications satellite Galaxy 15’s internal batteries finally ran down, triggering a computer reset that enabled bringing it back under control. It’s erratic transmissions have interfered with the operation of a number of commercial satellites, including parts of NOAA’s National Weather Service.

See, Watts Up WIth That isn’t all anti-scientific disinformation! It’s just almost entirely anti-scientific disinformation.

I had some personal experience with telecommunications satellite malfunctions years ago when ANIK E-2 was incapacitated for several months by a solar storm. Satellite malfunctions sure get your attention when your business depends on them!
