U.S. Missile Defense System Successfully Intercepts Target
The United States Missile Defense Agency fired interceptor missiles from Vandenberg Air Force Base on Monday in a successful first-of-its-kind test of the nation's missile defense program.
The test was meant to practice how well the U.S. military could respond in the event of a missile being shot from another country like North Korea or Iran.
Officials said the two interceptor missiles -- which were launched at around 10:30 a.m. -- hit their target. Shortly after the launch, twin contrails could be seen in the sky over the region
