Need Another Seven Spy Satellites

Tonight in Spy Class I learned so much cool shit that I will post about when I have more time. Tonight however I give you this morsel to savor -

The conspiracy theorists among you will have a field day with this -

The space shuttle Challenger was carrying a secret payload for the CIA the day it exploded. The Challenger had an off-the-books mission to replace a top-secret spy satellite that had stopped operating earlier that year. Two months after Challenger exploded - the CIA tried to launch a rocket from California with a replacement satellite. That rocket also exploded in mid-air. This left a significant portion of the USSR without satellite surveillance for almost 2 years.

Think about it...
