Though it sounds like something out of a sci-fi flick, Defense Tech is reporting that China has successfully tested an anti-satellite weapon. They conducted the test by demolishing an old Chinese weather satellite over 500 miles above the earth. What does this mean for us? Well, unless we can get a real-life Jack Bauer over there this means China can take out our DirecTV and Dish network satellites! Oh Noes!
