Defence Sheild Failure

The Missile Defence Agency said an "unknown anomaly" was to blame for the system shutting down.

A spokesman said officials would now study data from the launch site at Kwajalein Atoll, in the Marshall Islands, to establish what went wrong.

The goal, announced by US President George W Bush in 2002, was to have a basic ground-based shield in place by the end of this year.

Money well spent, you decide.

Previous tests gave positive results in 5 out of 8 cases, if it was my hard earned tax money, I would be happy with nothing less than 100%.
