The collision between a US and a Russian satellite over Siberia may have been accidental and the first of its kind, but experts say more crashes will inevitably occur and could have geopolitical consequences. (Luke Baker LONDON) (Reuters)

I don't understand. Here's space - all of space - okay, less than that, due to gravity, but they put these satellites into a pretty darn big place 500 miles over earth and two of them hit each other? How impossible is that?

You get out your Red Ryder BB gun and I'll get mine and at 100 feet we'll see if we can hit each other's BB in flight! I'm not Mister Math Whiz but I would guess, reasonably, that two satellites hitting each other is even harder.

I think it's a sign.
