They’re gonna shoot it down.
The US is preparing to shoot down one of its own satellites that is falling to Earth.
The 10-ton spy satellite was launched in December 2006 but failed properly to deploy and has been slowly falling back to Earth ever since.
Ah well, you have all those missiles and tracking systems, might as well use them to shoot each other. I suppose I should be happy about the government worrying about where the thing will land, but I think they’re just really showing off.
