Pentagon researches new life for dead satellites

This illustration released by The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) showing a satellite used for DARPA's Phoenix program scavenging defunct communication satellites for their valuable parts and recycling them to build brand new ones. It's the latest pet project from the Pentagon's research wing known for its quirky and sometimes out-there ideas. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is spending $180 million to test technologies that could make this possible. (AP Photo/DARPA)
