The concept of this missile shooting down that dead spy satellite falling out of orbit is fascinating. How high is that dead satellite orbiting at? 160 miles? Space Shuttle orbit?
What would be the satellite's orbital velocity at the time of missile impact? Are they trying to hit it while its orbit is decaying or while its still high?
Will the missile go straight up and hit the satellite at the point where the trajectories intersect or would the missile go into a partial orbit and try to chase the satellite by coming in from behind?
