Posted: Sat, Nov 28, 2015, 4:47 PM ET (2147 GMT)
A communications satellite owned by an Israeli company has failed in orbit and probably will not be revived, the company announced Sunday. Spacecom said the Amos-5 satellite suffered a sudden failure in orbit Nov. 21 and is neither transmitting nor responding to commands. The satellite was buit by Russian company ISS Reshetnev, with a payload provided by Thales Alenia space, and launched in late 2011. Spacecom said it does not expect contact with Amos-5 to be restored, and it is working to provide capacity on other satellites for the customers using that spacecraft.
