Ok, first, I'm not sure where this should go so it might get moved.
Second, I'm not 100% positive that it is called Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin Excersise.
What I do know of it is that is was a project during the Cold War in which Large Radar dishes (the kind that is at the begining of 2010 I believe)
were usedto fry the circutry of Russian spy satellites. The way they acomplished this, appearently, was to set one up as the "targeting" dish, and
the "fireing" dish would point to the same location. Mounted on the "fireing" dish was a large focusing lens and when it was time the "fireing"
dish would discharge (and for a dish of that size I can immagine that is quite a bit of energy) going through the lens, focusing the discharge into a
narrow beam, and in turn frying the circutry of said satellite.
If anyone out there has any more information than what I have posted here, please let me know.
