Comment Re:Shuttle? (Score 1) 243

It might be easier to launch something from the shuttle to push the satellite out into deep space than it would be to launch something from the ground. Having said that, I think you're right, they won't waste money on this unless a) there's some new weapons tech they want to trial, or b) we reach crisis point with debris smashing up functioning satellites on a regular basis.

Were there fewer fools, knaves would starve. - Anonymous
