Behold, satellites of the universe, Intelsat's Galaxy 15, universe's first zombie satellite.

This week's featured zombie turned out to be an object pretty dead already by itself, long before going into its undead status, and weights 4,171-pound, making it essentially the heaviest zombie in undead history. Nevertheless, that fact does not make her any less deadlier.

The Galaxy 15 commercial satellite used to be just like its other compatriots, circling Earth about 22,369 miles high, going about with its dead-end, space-bound job and its repetitive existence. That is, until it was inadvertently 'nuked' by a solar storm of sort. It has since lost all communication with the ground but is still wandering around the geostationary arc still broadcasting bumping other satellites on its way.

Now, termed a "zombiesat" by engineers who obviously have some sense of humor, it does what a zombie does, bumping around aimlessly and is poised to be take down the AMC-11 C-band satellite owned by SES of Luxembourg and will continue to go on taking down other nearby satellites until it stops pointing at Earth.
