SpySat update

As of Monday, a few days ago, it was reported that fewer than 3000 pieces of the destroyed US spy satellite are being tracked... however, according to Jim Oberg, by Tuesday only 17 pieces were being tracked, as he writes in an article in which he also debunks five myths about the event.

Also, AstroProf has more on the missile they used to hit the satellite, and it's an interesting read.
