Chinese Space Chief: This, recruits, is a 20-kilo hunk of broken satellite debris. Feel the weight. Every so often, the anti sat missle of the People's Republic of China accelerates one to .00026 percent of light speed. It impacts with the force of a 38-kilotomb bomb. That is three times the yield of the city buster dropped on Hiroshima back on Earth. That means Sir Isaac Newton is the deadliest son-of-a-biatch in space. Now! Serviceman Yang! What is Newton's First Law?
First Recruit: Sir! A object in motion stays in motion, sir!
Chinese Space  Chief: No credit for partial answers, maggot!
First Recruit: Sir! Unless acted on by an outside force, sir!
Chinese Space  Chief: Damn straight! I dare to assume you ignorant jackasses know that space is empty. Once you fire this husk of metal, it keeps going till it hits something. That can be a Russian Satellite, or the planet behind that satellite. It might go off into deep space and hit somebody else in ten thousand years. If you pull the trigger on this, you're ruining someone's day, somewhere and sometime. That is why you check your damn targets! That is why you wait for the computer to give you a damn firing solution! That is why, Serviceman Chung, we do not "eyeball it!" This is a weapon of mass destruction. You are not a cowboy shooting from the hip!
