This is why the use of encryption is a must. Sending email is like sending a postcard, except that copies of it are made and stored for perusal by government officials and ISP employees. Since most people use Firefox they should check out the amazing http://getfiregpg.org/

+ - US Delta rocket crashes in Mongolia

Submitted by Dr La
Dr La (1342733) writes "Two metal objects, one cylindrical and a smaller round one, which crashed near Buren Soum in the Tuv province of Mongolia on 19 February , are parts of an American Delta II rocket stage (nr. 35939, 2009-052C) that launched the military STSS Demo 1 & 2 satellites in September 2009. The largest of the two objects is 7.5 meter long and has the serial number "02728" on it. Pictures of both objects can be seen here

The Delta II rocket in question launched a military satellite duo, parts of the STSS program, intended for space-based detection and tracking of missiles.

The fall of the rocket stage was followed by amateur satellite trackers in the months leading up to the February 19 decay over Mongolia. Based on their final orbit determinations just hours before the decay, the decay must have occured near 3:32 UTC on February 19."

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
