Officials had hoped military contracts for the submarine-launched missile could be negotiated next year, but the high-profile botches look likely to derail those plans. The Bulava is Russia's answer to the American Space Defense program.
But I want to point out the following description. "The article states that the blue light seemed to soar up from behind a mountain near the city of Tromso, in the northern part of Norway. The light stopped in mid-air, then began to move around in circles. Seconds later, a giant spiral had covered the entire sky. From the center of which, a green-blue beam of light shot out from the center of the spiral that lasted for ten to twelve minutes before the light show ended." (italics and red my own). Please note when the 'beam' shot out of the spiral. It doesn't 'ring' right with me as just a simple missile test. Its just something else I think. But the failed missile test will be the official cover story for this event - of that I am sure of.
