I hope they remember to do all trajectory calculations in all the same units of measure. Might under shoot, hit China and start WWIII.

Certain problems may have built in solutions, i.e., the global warming issue may work on these hydrocarbons just as well as this sattelite machine. Why invest in things when you can do things cheaper? Penny for your thoughts!

You are so right..and what if other countries ABM systems think we are shooting at them? WW3?

What a waste of money. This whole thing is being staged by the U.S. to rattle its sabre and try and scare someone into bending to military pressure. You can be sure if NASA had anything to do with any of the engineering of the rocket they say they are going to use to shoot down their U.S. made satellite it will take more than one of those multi-million dollar duds to get even close to the target.

If this whole fiasco was anything but a staged performance all the U.S. would have to do is ask either Russia, China or France to send one of their superior interceptor aircraft and throw a hand-grenade at the poorly built NASA piece of junk. Save the taxpayers a lot of money and NASA more shame.

Let the stupid thing fall on Kosovo.

It is a waste of money, but let's think of what happens if we just let it go into the atmosphere and land. Think of the possibility that it could take out a small block. It is big enough. Not to mention all the toxic fuel.

If it was over foreign soil, we would probably think otherwise, but since it is a strong scenario of it landing on American soil, I say we need to blow it up.

There is stuff all over the internet about this. What else do you want to know, "are you going to die?". The answer is No. If it hit your house, then you'd be complaining, why didn't the government do something about it. Geez, people want it both ways.

Hezbollah is a group/organization, not a place.
