US Missile Hits Satellite

Posted by Ryan on February 21, 2008

Hitting a bullet with a bullet!  In order to blast the toxic hydrazine from a wayward spy satellite, the Pentagon ordered the destruction of the probe last night (or early this morning depending on where you are).  I think this is really really cool and justifies the research and development of these kinds of weapons: one target, one missile, one kill.  Perfection. 

We’ve saved the environment with a missile program (the Libs must have a deep dilemma with that one), we’ve shown the Chinese we too can hit targets in space, and we’ve shown that the child of SDI actually works when it has to.
