The US government has announced that they will be shooting down a satellite that is currently orbiting the earth.
It is one of their own satellites that is supposedly filled with toxic rocket fuel. It is supposed to be crashing into the earth’s atmosphere before long and they want to shoot it down so they can control where it crashes.
This story is especially cool because the military will be shooting down the satellite from a sea based vessel. As part of our missile defense system, this will be a great test for operation star wars.
