DoD video of the satellite getting dealt with

Well bleargh, I tried to embed the video, but blogger won't let me so you'll have to go here to see it. Actually pretty cool. They didn't even need a warhead--just the impact was enough to do the job.
And yes, they have detected hydrazine, the frozen fuel of concern originally, among the debris, so it's believed that the fuel tank was indeed ruptured (the point of the whole exercise) and the fuel dispersed to burn up on reentry.
