US Decides to Shoot Down a Deaf Spy Satellite Two weeks ago, we heard that a broken American spy satellite had fallen out of orbit and was scheduled to strike the Earth early next month.

Political appointments and the reshaping of the judiciary President Trump has the chance for a long-term impact -- not just on the US Supreme Court, but on the entire federal court system.
