It seems that US is going to shoot down the spy Satellite that is going to fall on earth.The following is an excerpt from AOL
Taking a page from Hollywood science fiction, the Pentagon said Thursday it will
try to shoot down a dying, bus-size U.S. spy satellite loaded with toxic fuel on
a collision course with the Earth. The military hopes to smash the satellite as
soon as next week - just before it enters Earth's atmosphere - with a single
missile fired from a Navy cruiser in the northern Pacific Ocean.
I hope this new procedure if successful would help humanity one day to shoot down asteroids and other bodies when they threaten earth.
Also if man migrates to space like in gundam series and spacenoids drop colonies,asteroids onto earth when we have space wars we can blast them using missiles :-)
