"Loral Skynet, a subsidiary of Loral Space & Communications (OTC BB: LRLSQ), today said that its Telstar 4 satellite experienced a short circuit of its primary power bus today at 8:56 am EDT, causing the satellite to cease operations. Loral Skynet immediately made capacity available to most Telstar 4 customers, many of whom have already had their services restored on Loral's Telstar 5 and Telstar 6 satellites...."
