Developing, building and launching satellites is only a small part of the job. Operating satellites in space is another, and most certainly not always a routine job.

Not all satellites function perfectly during their expected life span; some have different lacks during launch, some are in a wrong orbit, some stop functioning before the end of their expected lifetime, whereas others have flawed sensors or processors etc. The challenges are many and complicated and – without physical contact with the satellite.
