In the unlikely event of an accident...

First we heard about a collision of two satellites in space. With 6,000 satellites encircling the globe (3,000 inactive) this was an accident waiting to happen. A very unlikely event, they say, but still - it happened.
And yesterday they told us about the collison of two atomic submarines in the Atlantic Ocean that happened in the night from February 2 to 3. Both subs can carry 16 ballistic missiles with nuclear warheads - so we can all feel really save on this planet. Of course an accident like this is very unlikely and there's no reason to be worried - it will probably never happen again. Yeah, right. So we hope and pray.
