Space crash!


Today, for the first time, or at least the first time that has been publicly acknowledged, two satellites crashed into each other in space! This took place 485 miles above Siberia and at speeds in the thousands of miles per hour. There is now a gert massive cloud of debris that poses a bit of a threat to all the other crap going round and round and round.

Firstly I hope it doesn't come down over BS5, and secondly, I wonder if there has been an exchange of insurance details?

Sir, do you know how fast you were going? License and registration please. I hate to see the bill for that one!

Agreed - it's a tricky phone call; 'Hi honey, I crashed the satellite on the way to the store, can you you come and collect me?'

did they call the police, none shouldve been hurt then?

Not sure but I do know my TV signal went off about the same time!
