+ - Possible collision between cube-satellite and old space junk

Submitted by photonic
photonic (584757) writes "The BBC is reporting about a possible collision between Ecuador's first satellite (a small cubesat) and debris from an upper stage of an old Russain rocket. If confirmed, this might be the 3rd case in recent years, after a high-speed collision of an Irridium satellite with a dead Russian satellite in 2009 and a collision earlier this year between a Russian laser reflector (which can be tracked very accurately) and a tiny piece of a debris of a Chinese weather satellite that was destroyed in a missile test."
