Do you know what this is?

For those of you that I stumped with this one the chemical was Hydrazine.

Hydrazine is the rocket fuel that was still in the satellite the US Navy destroyed on Wednesday night.

But the question still remains: was the destruction of the satellite really due to this fuel or was it to:

a) show that we could do something the Chinese recently did?


b) destroy a satellite that contained classified information and/or technology that we did not want a foreign country to get a hold of?

Just some food for thought.


This has been in the news quite a bit lately. Can you tell me what it is any why it has been in the news?
