Right. But the Shuttle Program itself was not secret.
The thing is, that something that big is reported on page 10 in a small box, as if the US has a new space program every two weeks. Our two superpowers on the verge of a new arms race is pushed to page 10? The german Tagesschau, the most influential news program in german television, preferred to report about the guy, who hurt himself in a game show, while there was no mention of the fact that the next generation space program just so happens to drop out of the nightsky after seven month of active duty in space?
Thats more then odd. Thats bizarre.
