Re: Slow

but admit it, it's really slow.

From my well defended position on the Heights of Ignorance, I'll happily admit it.

But what's the real world significance of all this? A few satellites have failed for a whole range of reasons, but what is the actual attrition rate for satellites, and how many are due to micro-meteorites and the like?
