Missile-Defense Test Postponed by Fog

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AP) – A key test of the nation’™s missile defense system was postponed Thursday because of fog in Alaska, authorities said.

An interceptor missile was supposed to have been launched from this California base on a near-collision course with a missile lifting off from Kodiak Island in Alaska.

However, Kodiak was socked in by fog and the launch was put off until Friday at the earliest, Vandenberg spokesman Jack Hokanson’¦.

The test is designed to see how well the kill vehicle’™s optical sensors work and will be considered a success even if no collision occurs, officials said.

Star Wars Missile Defense? It sounds more like Mr. Magoo Missile Defense to me.
