Canadian Menace: In Space

I've said before, several times, that satellite reconnaissance is probably as important and more useful than the nuclear deterrent, and that technical change means that it's feasible. Here's an example: Canada just launched its own independent radar satellite, with the object of monitoring the vast spaces of the Arctic. Even smaller economies than the UK can now afford this; the pay-off is that it helps you see-and-avoid approaching Iraqs.

But really, the point of this post is just to say that POLAR EPSILON is such a cool codename for a top-secret space project.

Agree, very cool name, though I'm not sure what it means, if anything. I guess it's better than calling it "Polar Five".
