Lost In Space

Candice eetimes“We lost Zuma sir.”

“What?  Did the launch fail?”

“Ummm… no sir.  The launch worked perfectly.”

“Did it fail to separate from the booster?”

“No sir, separation was perfect.”

“Then it failed to deploy?”

“Well… sir, we can’t say for certain.”

“Why the hell not?”

“Well, it’s a stealth bird sir, it’s painted perfectly black so telescopic tracking can’t see it… it has a very small radar cross-section to begin with, and the new radar absorbing coatings handle the rest.  We can’t track it.”

“Then tell it to report back where it is.  Send it a command to transmit it’s position and status!”

“Ummm… sir… we can’t.”

“What the hell are you trying to tell me?”

“Well… you see… it’s was such a secret project, everything hush-hush and need to know… well sir… it seems that we forgot the password.”
