USA193 - Spy satellite out of control

, posted: 14-Feb-2008 16:59

LOL: Launched in December 2006, USA193 has a top secret payload and one can only assume it is operated by the NRO. Shortly after reaching orbit ground controllers lost control of the satellite and it's orbit has been decaying ever since. It is already down in the upper atmosphere and is estimated to re-enter the atmosphere sometime in March, not quite in time for the 4th of July ;-)
