Submission + - Canada's Radarsat-1 satellite hobbled (

An anonymous reader writes: A story from Canada's Radarsat-1 had an unexpected "technical anomaly" and has been placed into a 'safe mode' until a solution can be found, if any. The satellite was launched in 1995 and has a synthetic aperture radar sensor onboard to collect data about earth. Prior to the anomaly the satellite was still capturing data, alas, new image requests from Radarsat-1 are no longer being accepted. The Radarsat-1 replacement satellite Radarsat-2 was launched in 2007 and is operating normally. -ZU
