Via Gizmodo, here’s the debriefing of that spy satellite getting shot down. It’s cool, but not exciting. Which is how real-life science fictiony stuff usually is.
Does anybody really believe that we went through all this trouble because we were afraid that some of the satellite fuel might survive re-entry and possibly harm the environment? Come on, how poisonous can it be? That satellite must do some seriously cool, science fictiony stuff for us to be this serious about making sure that no identifiable parts of it make it back to earth. Maybe it’s the weather control satellite that Bush used to make Katrina, and he was worried that part of it might land in Spike Lee’s yard.
