    Maybe it's time to start keeping track of orbits.

    I have a friend who works with NRO (the space sidearm of the NSA) and he told me this...

    it wasn't a Russian satellite that crashed into the US one: it was a UFO. They had been monitoring a sudden insurgence of UFOs in low Earth orbit in the last couple of years and this satellite was on a search and capture mission (Iridium my ass).

    It was tracking a certified UFO and was attempting to intercept by firing its retro rockets and changing its orbit, but the disc shaped craft apparently saw this and did a quick evasive maneuver. Luckily the US sat had a last resort depleted-Uranium tipped projectile weapon which managed to clip the UFO along its x axis and blew a chunk about a third of its size off into space.

    Sensors have indicated that UFO is totally incapacitated and outgassing Hydrogen Chloride into space. Its also been nudged into a decaying orbit that should bring it down in about 3 months.

    The Pentagon and NASA are scrambling to launch an emergency Shuttle mission to capture the remains of the craft before it gets burned up in the atmosphere.

    Iam putting my life at risk by leaking this.

    Way to get the word out...on a 3d computer forum, lol.

    The best response we can give to that is to think of game ideas.

    International Station travels at 28 000 km/h . I guess they travel bit slower, but it can give some image how powerfull collision was, i think it broken them in to very small pieaces.

    Yes, in fact probably much slower. Gravity is inversely proportional with distance, and since the space station orbits at an altitude of approximatly 220 miles while the collision reportedly happened at something like 500 miles up, the speed of the satellites could be much lower to attain orbit.

    I have an update.
    It seems the Pentagon has convinced NASA to scrub its Endeavour mission to the ISS instead to go look for this UFO's remnants. Launch is tentatively scheduled for March 14th.

    Meanwhile a French spy satellite has also run into trouble in the vicinity of the derelict UFO. whether this is purely coincidental, or caused by the debris cloud or in anyway connected with the earlier incident is unknown.

    Dude, I honestly thought that your original post was an attempt at tongue-in-cheek humor. US satellites don't carry weapon's systems. You can't be serious with this... or are you merely attempting to carry on the humor?

    Anyway, the next shuttle to go up is the Discovery.

    That would be a very difficult secret to hide. Seriously man, do you really believe this stuff? I'm pretty open-minded about a lot of things but this stretches credulity to the max.

    ever heard of 'plausible deniability', 'eminent domain', 'need to know', 'who gives a f...?'
    After 9/11 they (the DOD and the secret government spy agencies) were giving lots leeway to do whatever they had to, to get the job done.
