In an expensive technical mishap, a brace of top-secret American spy satellites was fired into incorrect orbits last Friday. According to a report in Aviation Week and Space Technology, the two spacecraft in question were ultra-classified ocean surveillance jobs, described as "critical to tracking ships that may conceal al …

What if , the debris field from the recent Chinese Killer Satellite tests shreds these baby keyholes or critically damaged the final Centaur Stage , given the slant eccentric orbit required for it to function in the manner intended , now that would be one of life's true ironies , given NORAD's failed history of telling the real truth since the days of the .old Sky Lab's final fiery death plunge from orbit!
Life is always full of ironies!
