Space warning: Satellite is spiraling out of control above Earth

A satellite is spiraling out of control and could head towards Earth, its operator has confirmed


Spacecraft construction company SES says it lost control of its satellite on June 17 and is now struggling locate it.

SES’s AMC-9 satellite, which was 36,000 kilometres above the Earth’s surface, began spiralling out of control following a “significant anomaly”.

The company, which bills itself as a provider of “reliable and secure satellite and ground communications solutions”, said the satellite began breaking apart in the last few days.
