Is there a reason they cant just attach a rope and bring it down to Area 52?
worried about debris .... clearly not a rubber constructionWhy was it not shot down when it entered US airspace?
More like DAFCUN status.This story seems blown up out of all proportions. It's hardly a DEFCON status change event. I suggest US ring up China and say "Have you lost a balloon" and they will no doubt say " We don't recognise international phone call, please send letter through embassy" and they will go from there.
I meant before it passed over landworried about debris .... clearly not a rubber construction
It came in via Alaska and Canada apparently......I don't think it was detected until it was already over land. The US don't seem worried that the flight path is taking it anywhere controversial, they're taking the moral high ground with this one (makes a change, I know!)I meant before it passed over land
