Navy Prepares to Shoot Down Spy Satellite

Hosted by

The space shuttle Atlantis is back on Earth. Now the Navy is said to be taking aim at the failed spy satellite that has fallen out of orbit. The FAA has warned pilots to stay out of airspace west of Hawaii, which is apparently where what's left of the satellite may come to Earth after the Navy shoots it down. Joan Johnson-Freese, who chairs Nation Security Studies at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, is author of Space as a Strategic Asset.
