Space - (Ominous Mess): World leaders' shattered nerves were dealt yet another blow today with the news that US and Russian communications satellites collided in space after crossing Comet Lulin's earthbound trajectory.
The American Iridium satellite hit the defunct former Soviet Union flagship Rasputin orbiter at an altitude of about 500 meters above the Moscow Central Bank, causing fiery debris to rain down on the blighted Russian financial stronghold.
The two craft had always been suspected of being on a collision course ever since NASA's PR division ran out of ideas on updating its current UFO simulation program which keeps the alien blogosphere on tenterhooks.
The next space crash could well coincide with the August 6th lunar eclipse when the International Space Station will be in prime position to challenge the pathway of the annual Leonids meteor shower.
