Pulitzer Prize-nominated investigative journalist John Bloom discusses Eccentric Orbits: The Iridium Story. In the early 1990s, Motorola, the legendary American technology company developed a revolutionary satellite system called Iridium that promised to be its crowning achievement. In Eccentric Orbits, John Bloom masterfully traces the conception, development, and launching of Iridium and millionaire Dan Colussy's tireless efforts to stop it from being destroyed. Impeccably researched and wonderfully told, Eccentric Orbits is a rollicking, unforgettable tale of technological achievement, business failure, the military-industrial complex, and one of the greatest deals of all time.
