Iridium saga Continues (actually stops)

Hot of the press, Wall Street Journal reports shutdown of service is for
11:59 tonight (I'm assuming  EST since the story is filed from NYC).

Of course complete closure, auctioning off the assets and de-orbit of the
satellites won't occur right away.   Iridium need $8.3million to shut the
system down!
