Editor Note: I found this interesting. According to this source, a satellite communications satellite collided in orbit with a non-functioning Russian satellite. Ouch.
February 10th , Iridium lost an operational satellite. According to information shared with the company by various U.S. government organizations that monitor satellites and other space objects (such as debris), it appears that the satellite loss is the result of a collision with a non-operational Russian satellite. Although this event has relatively limited impact on Iridium’s service, the company is taking immediate action to address the loss. The Iridium constellation is healthy, and this event is not the result of a failure on the part of Iridium or its technology.
