The US military is in final preparations to activate our much-touted, much-debated missile defense system. However, the $85 million dollar test scheduled for yesterday had to be delayed…. due to cloud cover.

Suggested things the scientists should also beware before activating defense system:
1. migratory birds
2. kite competitions
