Satellite Shoot-Down Watch, Day 1.5: A hit! A palpable hit!

The Washington Post reports that a missile fired from the USS Lake Eerie has hit the failing US spy satellite. According to the Pentagon, debris is already beginning to re-enter and burn up in the Earth's atmosphere. No confirmation yet whether the primary target of the strike- a fuel tank filled with mega toxic hydrazine, was destroyed. Officials said they would determine whether the tank was hit within 24 hrs.
