Fandt også lidt om situationen for vores relæstationer derude i den
tynde luft ;-)


------- cut ---------------
The tin-whiskers problem was first noticed in the HS 601 series of
satellites, which includes both Galaxy 4 and Solidaridad 1, in late
1997. Since then, the tin-plated relays have been replaced with
nickel-plated ones, which are immune from the whiskers problem, on newer
satellites.

Sunday's failure is not the first for Solidaridad 1. In April 1999 the
primary spacecraft control processor failed, but control of the
spacecraft was restored with a backup processor, which then failed on
Sunday.
