    I recently watched a taped documentary in which it was mentioned that there 
    were some 70 iridium satellites in orbit, and that 13 had failed. The date of 
    this documentary is in question. Will someone please answer the following for 
    1: How many Iridium satellites are in orbit now?
    2: Are they numbered in sequence?
    3: How many are still operational at this time?
    Thanks all,
