Iridium satellite crash

I feel sad about one of the operating Iridium satellites crashed by an malfunctioning Russian satellite. Back in 1999, I worked with Iridium LLC, HKTI and Hong Kong Police to facilitate Iridium users in Hong Kong could make emergency calls with the telephone numbers of "112","999" and "852 999".

Lets hope countries which have the technical capability to fire rockets (USA, China and India etc) could mobilize space craft to clear away orbital debris even though this has no commercial profit.
