I love this thread - I'm a huge proponent of space exploration. Here's the thing, though - it's one thing for a space ship or space station to be up there; that's what they were designed for. They have airlocks and all that crud to make sure people are safe.
Our planet, though, is just out there in space, just floating around! I don't think people realize this, but there aren't any walls and doors and stuff protecting our planet! Who's idea was this?!? We need to get our planet back OUT of space until we've had a chance to think this through! ARE YOU WITH ME!!!??!!
I have a magnetic personality in the sense that my personality leads people to repeatedly strike me with large metal objects.

Not to mention such a feat borders on impossibility.
In the news:
"A sophisticated satellite was launched into space today to improve the preeminent path of communications between the president, military commanders and troops on the battlefield, ensuring a survivable line of contact even in hellish scenarios of nuclear warfare.
"AEHF is a very sophisticated satellite because it is built to provide the highest levels of protection for our nation's most critical users. Encryption, low probability of intercept and detection, jammer resistance and the ability to penetrate the electro-magnetic interference caused by nuclear weapons are essential features when communication can be of the highest priority."
AEHF was envisioned to keep communications flowing between the military and civilian leadership in any extreme wartime environment, giving the U.S. information superiority.
Communications relayed through AEHF can include critical support to Special Operations, situational awareness for Army troops, giving last-minute targeting information to en-route Air Force fighters and transmitting Tomahawk missile updates to the Navy.
The United Kingdom, Canada and the Netherlands are partners in the AEHF program, providing some funding in exchange for a corresponding amount of resources from the satellites. "
Vivi, your military has gone hi-tech!!
