Spy Satellite Blast, Caught on Tape (Updated)

A Navy missile blasted a dying spy satellite just above the atmosphere late Wednesday night. Here's the footage of the hit:


Heres The Footage

Over the years, the gang at the Center for Defense Information has done a good a job as anyone at this thankless task. They've just released their survey of the Pentagon's 2009 budget, highlighting research that could lead to arms in space. By the absolute most conservative estimate, we're talking $520 million dollars in next year's budget. The real number is likely several multiples of that.

The projects mostly involve ways to disable potentially hostile satellites; many have other uses, as well. They include a giant laser, to help spot targets in orbit (and to improve space imaging, in the meantime); micro satellites, that could disable another country's orbiters (or repair our own); a series of jammers, to block enemy satellite signals; and missile interceptors, based in space.

At first glance, an anti-missile might not seem like a space weapon project. But, as last month's satellite shoot-down showed, the same gear used to intercept a missile can also be repurposed to blast a sat. Especially if the gear is already in space.


Wow i'd have to say thats a big budget for the space weapons program, some of the technology their trying to bring up there is just amazing... soon we'll be fighting wars in space...

You hit the nail on the head there spock shock...space is the new battleground for the 21st Century.
Just think of the reliance the US and allies have on GPS to provide targetting and navigation for systems and weapons.Not to mention the intelligence provided by Recon and Sigint satellites to provide the information to allow commanders in the field to deploy there forces.
Any adversary against the US and Allies knows they will have to blunt this "supremacy" either using ground launched missiles/beam weapons to reduce the advange these force mutipliyers provide.
Thats why the Chinese have such an interest in developing ASAT weaponery to provide a counter to what is effectively the US high ground, taking away as much of the advantage as possible.

I was reading all about space weapons programs yesterday when I ran into that video, it seems they've got lasers and weird mirror technologies up there, some satellites manufactured just to kill other satellites if they have to, also some interesting planes capable of dropping payloads from re-entering the atmosphere, so its be like a 7000 mph bombing run, just takes a bit of google...

But also theres the possibility of some technology on the moon, the ex defense minister here in canada told the public about weapons on the moon to defend earth, im not sure if they're canadian tho, he also touched base on aliens in his speech...

That video put out by the DOD is the only video known to exist on the net.
The editing of the video release has some interesting time stamps for segments of the vid as well.

Besides that, I watched the supposed shoot down first hand by lucky chance.
And I'll tell ya, what was seen has some oddities as well that are presently unexplained.

Not quite sure, I did a search of ATS before posting, turned up nothing, definitely some spectacular fireworks, blowing up millions of dollars with a missile to space, lol, what a waste of money...

Am I the only one who noticed a UFO, before the missile reached it's target?
