WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's pledge to seek a worldwide ban on weapons in space marks a dramatic shift in U.S. policy while posing the tricky issue of defining whether a satellite can be a weapon.

Moments after Obama's inauguration last week, the White House website was updated to include policy statements on a range of issues, including a pledge to restore U.S. leadership on space issues and seek a worldwide ban on weapons that interfere with military and commercial satellites.

Obama just soiled my childhood. Lucas, Roddenberry, Weber, Ringo, Herbert, Card, Fleming & Douglas…call your office(s). And, Lucas… Han shot first.
