Letters Containing Suspicious Powder Renew Concerns Over Bioterror Attacks
http://www.findingdulcinea.com/news/science/2008/December/Letters-Containing-Suspicious-Powder-Renew-Concerns-Over-Bioterror-Attacks.html

Just days after the release of a bioterror vulnerability report, nine state governors received envelopes filled with white powder.

Although initial reports suggest the envelopes contained a substance likened to flour and have been deemed an “unfortunate prank” by the spokesman for one targeted governor, the deliveries spotlight the vulnerable state of many government offices. Letters postmarked from Dallas were received at governor’s offices in Alabama, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana and Rhode Island on Monday, in Alaska on Tuesday and in Maine on Wednesday.Early reports suggest the powder in all cases is harmless but samples have been sent to local laboratories for more extensive testing. The letters arrived just days after the Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction and Terrorism, a bipartisan congressional committee, announced the findings of their six-month study concluding that the United States is vulnerable to a bioterrorism attack.

Rapid-Fire Killer Robot Passes Flight Test
That's the sound made by the "Multiple Kill Vehicle," a frightening but fascinatingly cool hovering robot meant to shoot down enemy ballistic missiles.
Video of a Dec. 2 flight test conducted at Edwards Air Force Base in California by defense contractor Lockheed Martin has made it onto the Web, and it looks like something out of the "Terminator" movies.
Rival defense contractor Raytheon is also working on its own multiple-kill-vehicle program.
Inside a large steel cage, Lockheed's MKV lifts off the ground, moves left and moves right, rapidly firing all the while as flames shoot out of its bottom and sides.
The plan is to mount one or more MKVs onto carrier missiles, which would launch into space to engage enemy nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles at the apogees, or peaks, of their trajectory arcs
