CAPE CANAVERAL AIR FORCE STATION Fla, - A Boeing rocket roared from its seaside launch pad just before sunset Friday, carrying into orbit the last installment of the Air Force's state-of-the-art communications system.

The 6,025 pound Lockhead Martin built satellite is the 14th in the Defense Satellite Communications System and will become one of five primary satellites that make up the constellation. The others perform a backup.

Well Im not too saw about this, yet another satellite going up?(sorry another part of it) its for military use and it is going to be secure for communications, come on guys this is reality, the hackers around today will find something to send and block it wont they?

It is jam-resistant and can survive a nuclear exchange? why would they need to make it for "nuclear exchange"? what else is on the back of it then?
