    They used a spruce 2X4 8 ft long. The satellite's name was Bull and they were trying for a Texas heart shot.

    So do you really believe the Navy could actually hit a bull in the butt with a 2X4???

    What they did was truly amazing. It is equivalent of shooting a bullet with your bullet and leading it perfectly.

    It takes more than a mathematician to accomplish that. Again, truly amazing.
