Missle defense doesn’t work! This is the message by MIT Professor Theodore A. Postol. I’ve been following this story since MIT Technology Review reported about Professor Postol’s quest. Today, the New York Times reported prominentely about this scandal.

I had the pleasure to hear Professor Postol talking about Missle Defense at the lecture series from the MIT Club of Boston – that was some time last year, I think in September or so. He didn’t say much more than what was covered by the Tech Review article – but it was interesting to see him answer to the questions of a highly skilled audience, and to see how solid his arguments were. If he’s right, he is about to uncover a huge scandal. I think it’s great that we still have passionate scientists with strong integrity.
