Yet Another Satellite (DSP-23 ) Out of Control

There seem to be so many satellites creating problems while in orbit.. This one is an American secret satellite that either is working or is not working.. I couldn't make my mind up either after reading but they say it wont create any problems till far far away in the future.. I like their optimism..

Lofted into orbit in November 2007, this Defense Support Program (DSP) spacecraft apparently went belly-up the following year. Making matters worse, DSP-23 died before it could be nudged into a graveyard orbit, where it would no longer be a collision threat for other satellites.

But, fingers are crossed at SES ASTRA — operator of the ASTRA Satellite System that provides satellite services in Europe — regarding the meanderings of DSP-23.

More likely the sat has gone offline to those who are accountable.

The satellite is one of a constellation of Earth-staring spacecraft designed to spot orbits rocket launches, nuclear blasts, as well as gather other types of technical intelligence from their 22,300-mile (35,888-km) geosynchronous (GEO).

Sounds black ops to me.

Much too convenient.
