Well this will be interesting to follow. I hope those amateur astronomers are tracking it. When this was still part of NASA it was meant to be a utility vehicle. So I'm left wondering what the USAF has done to it to change its purpose and project objectives.edit on 6-3-2011 by Kratos40 because: spelling
It's because they are moving the war on terrorism to outer space.
Disable some GPS satellites so the can't fire missles,
maybe shoot a lasar beam at targets,
maybe save the world from a near earth object.
Just a thought;
If Elenin is on course to impact either Earth or the Moon, and TPTB/NASA knows this; could this launch actually be an attempt to knock the asteroid off target?
Could it be a retaliatory attack against the speculative "attackers" that sent Comet Elenin?
There is evidence against this; but also evidence suggesting it's possible...
What do you think?
Not very likely... but anything is possible these days.
