    I just did a quick check using the UCS Satellite database and found there are 
    over 260 operational satellites in similar LEO Sun-Synchronous orbits as was  
    FengYun 1C.  All of these are at much increased risk now that there are likely 
    countless bits of debris sharing their orbit.
    
    This event was quite un-neighborly to say the least and the ramifications will 
    reverberate for quite some time.
