    Overheard when the finger pointing started.

    "What do you think we are, rocket scientists?"

    At least they didn't crash land on Mars, due to a mathematical conversion issue. Wireless internet on the Sahara, maybe next week.

    Since that satellite would have served Africa and Europe, strongholds of terrorist activity, I would not be completely surprised if it turned out to be sabotage.

    It's been known for some time that terrorist groups used social media, notably FB to communicate.
