Satellite USA-193 Destroyed


Satellite USA-193 has been successfully struck with a Standard Missile 3 on Wednesday night at about 10:30 PM EST over Hawaii. USA-193 was a spy satellite that had lost power some time ago. To prevent the satellite from reentering the atmosphere and releasing its hydrazine fuel, US officials shot the satellite out of the sky. China conducted a similar exercise last year. The event was not visible from my midwestern location, but the debris cloud from the event may make several passes over the US. This video shows the expected path of the debris cloud after the satellite's destruction.



Watch for debris reentering the atmosphere over the next few days. It will appear somewhat like a meteor. If you see anything, please leave a comment. I'd be interested to hear about sightings!

Clear skies!

Such a solution may already exist in the Housing Choice Voucher program, a 40 year old program which enables low income households to afford rental housing in the private market. Rental crisisThe coronavirus worsens an already severe housing affordability crisis.

This is corroborated by Hansson, Wrangmo, Solberg Silen's findings (2013) that the optimal profile should be active, each activity must have a clear purpose be useful to members, send out new timely information which will not be seen as spam or bombarding their connections if they choose to run competitions, it is only good if there is a useful prize. And finally, companies should take any critical comments seriously. However, their findings are from 3 years ago, which in technology is quite a while and Facebook has changed some of it's features in that time. {tag: Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Triple White Cream White}

It's an odd approach, and the exact opposite way that Stephon Marbury was able to break the mold with his $19.98 priced Starbury shoes back in 2006. {tag: Yeezy Static Vs Cloud White}Yellow And Black Jordan 1s Grade School, Economy since March.Harvard Law professor, Mark Roe, told Yahoo Finance that part of the delay is due to the fact that most companies, when hit with a shock, will exhaust cash sources first, and file for bankruptcy only when they have no other choice. Image: Getty"Even if a company isn't selling anything now, if it has some cash in the bank, or can draw on a bank line, or can somehow just push things along to kick the can down the road most companies will try to do that," he said, adding that small businesses that have already entered bankruptcy are not eligible for the Act's Payroll Protection Program.Roe estimated that if the economy continues on its current trend, a surge in bankruptcies should be expected around September or October. In addition, he said, historical correlations exist between increased claims for unemployment and business bankruptcy filings."When unemployment claims shoot up, you tend to get an increase in bankruptcy filings three to six months later," he said.
