Asta5A (Sirius 2) is a damaged and failed communications satellite, which experienced a technical anomaly leading to the end of the spacecraft’s mission in January of 2009. Astra5A continues its asynchronous travels around the earth, but now in a graveyard orbit, filled with messages that cannot be sent or retrieved.
