Giant golf ball deployed.  CNN says that "a floating X-band radar has to be modified to track the satellite's trajectory."  That would be the massive -- and massively controversial -- Sea-Based X-Band Radar.  The $815 million, 28-story, orb-like contraption has the ability, in theory, to tell which way a baseball is spinning -- from 3,000 miles away.  But it's also proven to susceptible to the elements and high seas.  The thing has been in and out of the repair shop for years.

Big bucks.  "The attempt by the U.S. Navy to use an anti-missile missile to shoot down a potentially hazardous satellite will cost between $40 million and $60 million, Pentagon officials told CNN. "The missile alone costs almost $10 million."

Your chances of being hit by the falling satellite: one in a trillion.  "Compared with, for example, a one in 1.4 million chance of being hit by lightning in the United States," the Discovery Channel notes.

FEMA to the rescue?  "With an eye to the possibility that the missile effort will fail, the government has placed six rescue teams across the country to be prepared to act if the satellite hits the United States," according to the AP.

The spacecraft contains 1,000 pounds of hydrazine in a tank that is expected to survive re-entry and a fuel tank liner made of beryllium.

FEMA has prepared a guide for emergency responders that includes information about hydrazine and beryllium. The agency warns officials not to pick up any debris or provide mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to anyone who has inhaled hydrazine or beryllium.

Old news for NASA chief? Some were surprised to see NASA head honcho Michael Griffin helping plan this operation.  They shouldn't be.  Not only does he have to worry about what happens to the Shuttle and the Space Station.  But he was "deputy for technology at the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization and worked on missile defense systems from 1986 to 1991."

Diplomatic action.  According to the Washington Post, "the State Department sent cables to all embassies yesterday instructing diplomats to explain to foreign governments how the upcoming attempt to shoot down an out-of-control spy satellite is different from China's destruction of one of its orbiting satellites early last year."

Do or die for missile defense?  The shootdown "carries opportunity, but also potential embarrassment, for the administration and advocates of its missile defense program," notes the NYT.

They are pulling out all the stops on this. Watch out.

This looks like something out of Austin Powers. Where is Doctor Evil?


No wonder we are in a depression!

We have no body armour for our soldiers, but we have mobile "Planetary Spanning Radar Systems" that can be deployed at the push of a button.

FINALLY. I spent hours looking through all of Dig's posts just to find this again.

And damn, that thing looks like something out of a James Bond movie.

Thank you,
MS Trinket,
and Digg
for this supper information.
