This certainly is discouraging. North Korea's new satellite flew over Super Bowl site:
TOKYO (AP) -- Here's a bit of Super Bowl trivia: North Korea's newest satellite passed almost right over the stadium just an hour after it ended.
Whatever motives Pyongyang may have about using its rocket launches to develop nuclear-tipped long-range missiles, it now has two satellites circling the Earth, according to NORAD, the North American Aerospace Command, which monitors all satellites in orbit.
If we take them at their word, the satellites are up there to track the weather. Maybe that's so they can time their EMP explosion at the worst possible moment in the weather cycle.
One wonders how long it will be before Iran is cruising overhead, too.
BTW, why aren't those people who point lasers at plane pilots trying to disrupt those satellites?
