Government spy satellite rockets into space on Atlas 5

A classified U.S. spy payload rocketed into orbit from California on an Atlas 5 launcher Thursday, joining the nation's eyes and ears in the sky to supply intelligence to the government's national security agencies.

The satellite is owned by the National Reconnaissance Office, but government officials do not disclose the identities of the NRO's spacecraft, only saying the payload will serve national security purposes.

"The payload will serve national security purposes. Nothing to see here, citizen. Move along."

Boy, with all this surveillance the chances of another terrorist attack must be zero!

Yes because a terrorist looks totally different to a normal person. Get real.

What satellites do ensure (and have ensured since the 1960s) is that the chances of a sneak military attack like Pearl Harbour are zero.
