Blowing up a satellite

I was quite surprised (and pleased) at how much media coverage the US satellite shooting received. The video below is a worthwhile analysis by respected commentator Phil Plait (badastronomy.com).

For the first 3 1/2 minutes Phil explains the shooting and gives his overall opinion. At about 5 minutes he discusses the difference between this and the Chinese satellite shooting last year. A recap is given at 8.11.
