Our little satellite is still orbiting planet Earth and all her systems are still performing beautifully, in the meantime completing more than 10.000 orbits and approaching her 2nd birthday Smile

Yesterday we got some disturbing news however from the US Joint Space Operations Center: Delfi-C3 is going to have what's called a close approach with a piece of space debris that was created by the collision between two satellites last year (news article). They have predicted that the piece of debris will come as close as 500 meters to our satellite, now this may seem like a lot but the distances between passing satellites are usually much larger and there are so many disturbances up there that it can easily be a lot closer than that. As an example the first warning specified a distance of 133 meters while the update we received a day later said 492 meters. This 'incident' will happen at 14:49 GMT / UTC today, north-west of the continental US between New Foundland and Greenland. Our fingers are crossed!

I am with you crossing my fingers Albi,

Please let us know what happened.

*starts blowing to the debris away from Delfi-C3

Just received another update from the US JSPOC, the predicted smallest distance between our satellite and the piece of space debris is now 719 meters.

Below is a short movie of a simulation of the close approach (credits go to one of my co-workers). The quality might be a little bad but it at least gives you an idea.

Good news, she's still in one piece Very Happy We have just received a very clear telemetry signal from the satellite although we were unfortunately unable to decode any data due to the low elevation (only 1.6 degrees above the horizon). The signal alone however is proof enough that no collision occurred! Smile

Whew!! I am so glad for you and your team, Albi.

I did some quick calc's on that first distance you mentioned (500 m): 1,640 feet or 1/3 mile or 5-1/2 football fields. That indeed was a close call.

What is really astounding in all of this is the fact that someone is able to keep track of all those satellites, space junk and other debris - and that they notify whoever needs to know about the possible or impending collisions.

Question: What is happening to this particular piece of debris? Is its orbit degrading and will it eventually burn up? Or does someone else have to worry about it hitting their satellite?

Good news.

And tnx for the update.

Hey guys, just sending a message out in the middle of my road-trip. I am currently in Georgia as of day 2 on my way to Cape Canaveral Florida for STS-131.

Hope you made it Seg... it was a beautiful launch. Got up at 5am just so I could watch it online. Reminds me I need to make sure the date for the July launch is still on since that's the one I'm planning on.

Hey I just got back last night.. what an absolutely insane experience. It probably would have been less stressful if I didn't drive. I took some long exposure photos of the shuttle.. quite an amazing experience. These photos were taken from the Visitor Complex, the 2nd closest place available for viewing. I paid 50 bucks for a ticket.

Pure AWESOMENESS, Seg!!!!!
Incredible photos. Thanks for letting us see them. Smile

I didn't realize you had to pay. Thanks for that tip.
You said that's the "2nd closest place". What's the 1st (for visitors, not NASA workers)?

The first closest place is the Nasa causeway. Unfortunately tickets are drawn at random.. so it's like winning the lottery, I couldn't get the causeway tickets.

Of course the best place to view the shuttle would be the nasa benches where astronauts family, administrators and press members sit. But those benches are not available to the public.

The causeway tickets are more expensive then the $50 tickets I got. Only by about 10 bucks though.

you can get tickets through ebay or a travel agency but they are a lot more expensive.
