U.S. Military Satellite Explodes In Earth’s Orbit

CelesTrak, a civilian company, was the first to notice the explosion, which was later confirmed by the U.S. Air Force. The satellite was once a secret, but had become an ageing part of the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program. The U.S. military started work on the program back in the 1960s in order to aid reconnaissance and surveillance missions, writes Matthew Sparkes for The Telegraph.

Civilian scientists were able to use data collected by the system since it was declassified in 1972, and this particular satellite had been in orbit since 1995. Its long life sadly came to an end in a “catastrophic event” caused by “a sudden spike in temperature” and the consequent “unrecoverable loss of altitude control.”
