You're Being Watched: U.S. Launches New Spy Satellite
What are they spying on?
Go wake up your paranoid uncle and tell him that the United States has launched yet another spy satellite into orbit. As you might've guessed, the details are very classified but we do know that the massive rocket carrying the spy satellite blasted off from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base Wednesday .
The super secretive National Reconnaissance Office which is responsible for launching our spy satellites is planning another lift-off for later this year.
Oh, and in case you're wondering, this nice piece of hardware costs $1 Billion dollars and can take detailed pictures of a car's license plate from hundreds of miles away. The U.S. is gearing for some massive spying action. Your move, Russia. Or Syria. Or Egypt.
