Vandenberg Air Force Base successfully launched a missile Friday. An interceptor missile was launched today on a near-collision course with a mock warhead from Alaska in a key test of the nation's missile defense system. Military officials say the goal of the test is to see whether or not the missile can intercept a "target missile" launched from Kodiak, Alaska.
The 85 million dollar missile was launched from Vandenberg Air
Force Base on California's Central Coast. The missile launch was scrubbed on Thursday, due to bad weather conditions here and in Alaska.
