Abstract : The military space program is not known in any great detail by the general American public. The reasons for this lie in the heavily classified nature of the majority of military space programs. This, in turn, brings the media into conflict with the military. It is a conflict derived from the media's desire to have freedom of access to information vs. national security requirements
