Military Hush-Up: Incoming Space Rocks Now Classified!
Things that make you go Hmmmmmmm.....


"For 15 years, scientists have benefited from data gleaned by U.S. classified satellites of natural fireball events in Earth's atmosphere – but no longer.

A recent U.S. military policy decision now explicitly states that observations by hush-hush government spacecraft of incoming bolides and fireballs are classified secret and are not to be released, SPACE.com has learned.

The satellites' main objectives include detecting nuclear bomb tests, and their characterizations of asteroids and lesser meteoroids as they crash through the atmosphere has been a byproduct data bonanza for scientists."

This again? Despite the sensationalist title, the classified data had nothing to do with "incoming space rocks," only fireballs that were already hitting the earth's atmosphere and detected by earth-facing spy satellites.

And yes, there's an update with an equally sensationalist title.

The data on bright fireballs and bolides as seen by government spy satellites are now available publicly on a NASA site.
