Plink a satellite, and "oh damn! I'm sorry, but it looks like your satellite just got hit by some space debris." They cast bring them down, so prove it wasn't.
<mgodzilla> I was a r&d micro electronics engineer tech. in my youth.
* mgodzilla designed this dc to dc power supply they put on a satellite
* mgodzilla sent the satellite into orbit and lost contact w/ it
<Elephark> at least it was powered
<mgodzilla> they said it was mostly likely due to a power issue.
<mgodzilla> I was like - what are you lookin' at me for?!?

It is NOT a weapon delivery system. Nor is it messing with anyone else's sats. It is a testing platform.
You need to test something in space that you don't want to spend the money to permanently put in obit? Put it in an X-37b.
