The US 193 satellite intercept

James Oberg has published the most thorough analysis yet of this incident. His conclusion is that the reasons given by the U.S. government were valid. The satellite's hydrazine tank would not have disintegrated on a normal reentry. He also describes the technical side and explains how this was even more difficult than it looked. Congratulations on a first-rate article, Jim.
