The sensible thing would be to rationalize to the world's needs, deweaponize, and gather up the garbage. Or is that obvious, and we don't do "obvious"? We do "dual-use"!:(

well id say if they were heading at each other at an 80 degree angle and noone could spot that in the days preceding i smell a fish or 3. They have systems in place for aircraft. I'd be crazy to imagine that they dont use a similar system in tracking sats and debris. Also what was this Russian sat doing in such a low earth orbit?

Sounds more like the missile WAS the satellite. It didn't have any propulsion on the satellite huh? that's the bit i don't believe. You dont have to fire a gun to put a satellite out of action. you could always just ram it.....

What they're waiting for is a collision which works like energetic neutrons in two pounds of U-235, and produces a "gas cloud" of unpredictable trash out of our irreplaceable satellite systems.
Is it worth a bet?

It's all discussed in the link I uploaded previously.

Interesting. this is a graph of the orbital times (how long it take to go around once)

It looks like an elliptical orbit with a slight gradual decay. just at the last few revs you can see the changes. IF that was a purposefull collision it was a bloody good shot. maths wizards....
