    Another milestone in the militarisation of space. As in all the most terrible, destructive, inhumane advances in the technology of war for most of the past century, the United States leads the way.

    Laura Grego: "...argue the Air Force could accomplish the same objectives by using cheaper, more efficient spacecraft that either burn up..."

    If you don't know exactly what it is to be used for, how can you speculate on what is more efficient?
    It seems to me, reusing craft would be cheaper than continually letting them burn up, not to mention everytime we do a re-entry we get better and better at it for future spacecraft. No, quit trashing the planet and space, and recycle what we spent millions producing.
