Russian GLONASS navigation system turned off- began war in space
According to information-analytical center Roscosmos, Russian orbital constellation of navigation satellites GLONASS system has failed on April 2. Information-Analytical Center Roscosmos said, that disabling the Russian navigation satellites occurred due to unexpected problems in mathematical software activities in GLONASS simultaneously almost all spacecrafts. Surprisingly, such large-scale shutdown of all GLONASS satellites coincided with growing tension in Russian- American relations over Ukraine, which some have linked to the beginning of space wars, VIDEO:

Wow, I don't think I've ever seen that happen before. Apparently bad ephemeris were uploaded to all the satellites in the constellation. When that ephemeris became the active ephemeris the whole system went down and took about 12 hours to restore; they had to wait for each satellite to pass over a ground station. Interesting timing, but if there is more to the story I doubt we'll ever hear about it. I'm tempted to ask Leonid Elenin if he's heard anything over there in Russia as to why bad ephemeris were uploaded to the satellites. Clearly it wasn't just a transmission error, the same bad data was given to every single satellite.

Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire, I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate to say that for destruction ice is also great and would suffice.

 Quoting: Dr. Astro


exactly. They'll blame human error.
If this does have anything to do with another country, that country will never admit to it and Russia will never admit to having their satellites security compromised.
That is info that gets released 50 years in the future.

Not good. Modern society is way too dependent on satellites for this kind of stuff to start happening on that kind of scale. We could all wake up one day with no internet, TV, or phone service, and what's at the grocery store and gas station would be all there is until coms and navigation are restored.

Very bad sign.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787
