Military Covering Up Fireballs From Space


www.foxnews.com

For 15 years, scientists have benefited from data gleaned by U.S. classified satellites of natural fireball events in Earth's atmosphere — but no longer.

A recent U.S. military policy decision now explicitly states that observations by hush-hush government spacecraft of incoming bolides and fireballs are classified secret and are not to be released, SPACE.com has learned.

Really?

Is this what it's going to come to? The military isn't even going to do us the courtesy of letting us know that something the size of France is going to smash into the planet and kill us?

Why slap a classification on the incoming rocks?!

I'm actually appalled by this, being in the intelligence community. There is no reason to keep this information from the scientific community - much less the public. Sure, there are those who will speak of the riots and such that inevitably occur, but come on? Shouldn't we at least have the courtesy to know something is headed our way?

The satellites' main objectives include detecting nuclear bomb tests,

Well there's your answer...

Any way the sats are only useful for telling boffins that an object has entered the atmosphere and exploded... Nice and all that, no flipping use if you want to hide in a handy deep underground base


Looks like there will be some atmospheric 'tests' of nukes... You know the sort like what the Americans 'tested' on Japan - I just wonder who's nukes will be first?

I believe there is a few threads on this already.

I don't remember where I saw the video but it showed green fireballs incoming and outgoing. The outgoing ones might be a clue as to why the military is trying to keep things mum. Just speculating. It just occured to me that I might have seen the article at the Pegasus Research Consortium's sight. I'll check and if I find the article I'll get back.
