“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!
