1) U.S. Looking at Spacecraft as Bomber: The Pentagon is exploring development of a futuristic "space bomber"
that could destroy targets on the other side of the world in 30
minutes but could also intensify the growing international debate
over the militarization of space.

Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld directed the Pentagon last month to look
into "sub-orbital space vehicles" that "would be valuable for
conducting rapid global strikes," according to a planning document
issued under his name.
