Mysterious SDI defense program deaths beg frightening question – how far will a government go to protect its secrets?

The Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), popularly known as the “Star Wars project”, was first proposed by United States President Ronald Reagan in 1983 . Its stated mission was simple: create a space-based system to protect the United States and its allies from attack by enemy strategic nuclear ballistic missiles. After four years of study, it was announced that a global space-based shield was impossible using existing technology. By then, the world had begun to recognize that dozens of British scientists who worked its projects had begun to die mysterious deaths.
