By "reading between the lines", I mean that some little/apparently insignificant pieces of news can be extremely revealing as we all know ...
So what's going on? Military cutting the access to asteroid-watch and NASA about to regain access to these data using a different medium ... as far as I am concerned, this is mind-boggling ...
- What's goin' on?
- Was Von Braun totally right with the agenda?
- Are the military corporations realizing they'd have to skip the asteroid threat and go directly towards ETs?
- Did they launch a "placebo" satellite in order to control what the scientists can really see ?

New Asteroid Secrecy
But why? -
Information from military satellites about incoming asteroids has always been
given to scientists in the past, but now the military has suddenly classified the information.
A recent US military policy decision now explicitly states that observations by spy satellites of incoming fireballs have been classified as secret so they cannot be released. These are satellites that detect nuclear bomb sites and tests, such as those in North Korea and Iran. As a side effect, they have also detected potentially incoming asteroids. This means that incoming space rocks that may explode in our atmosphere are now classified, so we cannot be prepared for a possible cataclysm.
In Space.com, Leonard David quotes an anonymous NASA scientist as saying, "It's baffling to us why this would suddenly change. It's unfortunate because there was this great synergy, a very good cooperative arrangement. Systems were put into dual-use mode where a lot of science was getting done that couldn't be done any other way. It's a regrettable change in policy."
David quotes NASA's David Morrison as saying, "The fireball data from military or surveillance assets have been of critical importance for assessing the impact hazard." Are they afraid that someone might identify these space rocks as incoming UFOs?

Infrared Eye to Help Search for Asteroids
Aug. 31, 2009 -- NASA is preparing to launch an infrared telescope named WISE that could indeed live up to its name. Among its targets: dark asteroids that have slipped beneath the radar of an ongoing project to map objects larger than 1 kilometer that orbit near Earth.
Hunting asteroids wasn't in the original plan for the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, known by the acronym WISE, which arrived at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California this month for launch preparations.
"I was recruited when the team realized they would be seeing a lot of asteroids, some of which may be new," said University of Texas astronomer Robert McMillan who leads Spacewatch, an asteroid-survey project.
"They wanted someone who had connections with the ground-based telescope community who'd be able to do follow-ups," McMillan told Discovery News.
With a quartet of infrared sensors and a wide view, WISE is designed to survey the whole sky in infrared light. It's not the first telescope to do so, but scientists expect WISE's observations will be 500 times sharper than a survey conducted in 1980s by IRAS, the Infrared Astronomical Satellite, said astronomer Martin Cohen, with the University of California at Berkeley.
The data will be complied into an all-sky infrared atlas, a tome that is expected to include about 300 million objects, including about 100,000 asteroids.
Many of the asteroids seen by WISE will be known objects. Scientists hope to use the new observations to nail down details, such as an asteroid's diameter and surface reflectivity.
"With ground-based scopes, it's just a point source. You can't tell size directly," McMillan said. "A big object that is dark and a small object that is bright are going to look like they have the same brightness."
The solar system contains several million asteroids, most of which reside in the Main Asteroid Belt between Mars andÂ Jupiter. About 7,000 asteroids have been identified that cross or come close to Earth's orbit.
WISE will be able to spot asteroids emitting heat due to direct exposure from the sun, as opposed to visible-light searches that find asteroids that are reflecting sunlight.
"Those are two different physical effects," said McMillan. "An asteroid that has very dark color in invisible light is going to get heated up more, just like a black car in a parking lot is going to get heated up more than a white car."
Scientists hope to get enough positioning information to follow up targets with ground-based observations. McMillan expects that WISE will discover a few hundred new asteroids. The information will be folded into ongoing surveys to map asteroids that could impact Earth and cause widespread damage.
Other WISE targets include brown dwarfs, which are Jupiter-sized stars that never got their nuclear fusion engines running and ultra-luminous galaxies, which pump out the equivalent of about 1,000 sun-sized stars every year.
These galaxies are among the most luminous objects in universe, said WISE lead scientist Edward Wright.
WISE should be able to spot these galaxies back to when the universe was about 2 billion years old.
The telescope is scheduled to be launched on Dec. 7. The $300 million mission covers a month-long checkout and six months of science operations. The spacecraft is designed to last two years.

haha ... "the boy is dangerous" (yeah ... banana ballet)
That is bullshit. First they just told them how sensitive it is................second not much you can do even if you know about the satellite's technology to hide a nuclear explosion. We've been able to detect them for years now.
The satellite has another purpose. One that they need scientists to stay away from unless they figure out its true mission.
