Whoops... err... I broke the satellite

Oops.

Wow… there goes $200 million down the drain.

Another way to look at it is job security.

For the guy who dropped it? :)

Damn I can’t even imagine what was going on there.

Okay we got it rotating… rotating… 5 degrees… satellite slides right off… plop.

Jeez, it’s not like Lockheed Martin needed to delay the project. The satellite wasn’t even planned for orbit until 2008. Five years away. Gawd, remember when NASA could go from nowhere to the moon in less than 9 years?
