Well, I suppose that if it took out the bird that's carrying the Spice Channel, that might spell doomsday for some people...
If it's 60 meters across, the odds that it will hit anything is pretty slim, and the odds that it would hit a bunch of stuff is astronomical (har har har) -- satellites aren't that big, and while there are a lot of them, the geostationary orbital space is pretty empty.
