The Satellite Shoot-Down

The Department of Defense has released this video of Wednesday’s shoot-down of that defunct satellite. The satellite was traveling at 17,000 miles per hour, and the missile nailed it. Wow.

Besides the coolness factor, I suspect our government is publicizing this because it wants the bad guys around the world to know what our military is capable of.
