Hit and Run in Space?

04/25/2005 9:07 AM

NASA's Dart spacecraft may have accidentally collided with MUBLCOM, an experimental military communications satellite. This 'bump', which did not damage either craft, may have occurred on April 16th. Even so, the DART's (Demonstration of Autonomous Rendezvous Technology) mission has ended (unrelated to the bump).

I fear that some spin artist will use this incident as evidence that space-based interceptors would easy to design and deploy.
