Yeah, I should've read you second post before responding to your first. The
incident reported now is one wheel is not working, but this was already
after losing another. (The first one went bad last July.)





Ja I should have read the article before I commented.  I had heard they went
into safe mode but I hadn't heard it was the second wheel.  Momentum wheels
shouldn't fail.  Ball Aerospace is going to take a big hit over this,
Goodrich is going to take a bigger hit for it, sheesh damn.
