A bad day

Today's Soyuz/Fregat launch failure dropped a great many satellites into the ocean.  Clearly the greatest loss is felt by the owners and users of these spacecraft.  At the subsystem level, this destroyed:
  • 12 Sinclair Interplanetary reaction wheels, of varying sizes
  • 3 Sinclair Interplanetary star trackers
This is the single largest loss of our equipment to date.
