U.S. Missile Intercept a Success. Now What?

Defense officials are taking a victory lap after successfully shooting down a mock ballistic missile over the Pacific Ocean this week. It was the first live-fire intercept test of an intercontinental ballistic missile in history, a critical U.S. achievement coming at a critical time.

“It was phenomenal, historic, making our planet, our country safe from North Korea. It’s the first time ever we shot down an ICBM missile,” Riki Ellison, founder of the Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance, said.

Ellison started his organization to support the United States’ defense program and make it safer for all Americans. He was invited to watch the launch in person.
