    French spy satellite launched into orbit

    http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/space/1....ap/index.html

    PARIS, France (AP) -- A European rocket roared into space from a pad in South America on Saturday, placing into orbit a surveillance satellite billed as giving France's military new abilities to spy worldwide.
    guess the french needed some extra intelligence to decide when to surrender!

    A French made satellite? Sure it sounds like a great idea now but just try getting parts for it in a few years .

    I'm sure the French have high hopes for this cloning technology. Perhaps if they can bring Napolean back they'll have a mighty armed forces again.

    Since it's French, you dont actually have to shoot it down, just point a missile at it and it'll fly away by itself.
