Israel launches cutting-edge satellite to spy on MidEast adversaries

I spy and Israeli spy in the sky. Here's looking at you neighbors. Iran needs to pay China or Russia to knock it down.

Rumor is, it was taken out this morning while over Australia. Question is, if so, by who and why and what was it doing over Australia to start with.

Israel’s Defense Ministry has successfully launched Ofek 10, a next-generation satellite that will provide highly-targeted surveillance of specific locations – such as Iran’s nuclear sites.

“We continue to increase the vast qualitative and technological advantage over our neighbors," said Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon at the launch at a test site in central Israel, Israeli media reported.

“Our ability to continuously reach new levels of accomplishment, as with this launch, is what allows us to live a productive and prosperous life. Blessed is the state, and its people.”

Ofek 10 is the seventh Israeli satellite currently in space, and the first launched by the Defense Ministry since its predecessor, Ofek 9, four years ago.
