Lost in space?

GPS system ‘close to breakdown’
Network of satellites could begin to fail as early as 2010

US government officials are concerned that the quality of the Global Positioning System (GPS) could begin to deteriorate as early as next year, resulting in regular blackouts and failures – or even dishing out inaccurate directions to millions of people worldwide.

Let’s hope it doesn’t happen.

If it weren’t for Garmin, Rick Moran and I would still be in a cab trying to get to Lilek‘s birthday party.

UPDATE
AJ Strata eases my mind.

Thank you!

    Now this article, in the UK’s the Guardian, couldn’t possibly have anything to do with the fact that Gallileo is up for another round of financing and that the Chinese plans for their satellites are currently to mesh with the American system not the European system as orignally promised? Nah!

    Just a happy coincidence, Pat.
