Defense Secretary Backs Plan To Relaunch Radar Balloons

ABERDEEN, Md. (WJZ) — It flew across Maryland and into Pennsylvania, but now a plan to fly a pair of giant radar balloons could lift off again.

According to our media partner, The Baltimore Sun, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter signed off on the plan to relaunch the unmanned balloons over Aberdeen Proving Ground.

They have been grounded since a series of errors caused one of them broke free in October.

Getting them back in the air will require congressional approval, more money, training personnel and a new balloon.

Is that a radar dome, or are you just happy to see us?

It does x-ray into your homes.

No, it doesn't. Maybe infrared, but not x-rays. That's not how they work.
