I know they are going to do this over the Atlantic and I have no chance of seeing it but it is going to be so Cool! Unlike the Chines we are not going to leave 3000 parts flying at 18,000 miles per hour around. All Parts are coming down and Making up no more space Junk! One Chunk Down!

In live in Deming N.M. and have seen three THAD launches. Wild stuff. They Launch from White Sands about 120 miles away and it's a show.
Here is a THAD impact I caught about 3 minutes after the fact going to work one morning.
