The Man Who Shot Down the Satellite...

..or more correctly, the commander of the U.S. Navy vessel that downed that defunct spy satellite last week. His name is Captain R.M. Hendrickson, and he's skipper of the USS Lake Erie, the Aegis cruiser that destroyed the satellite with a modified SM-3 missile.

U.S. News has posted an interview with Captain Hendrickson. A very interesting read.
