Guam - An unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile blasted off on Friday in a weapons test by the U.S. Air Force. According to media reports, the Minuteman 3 missile launched from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base and sent the test vehicle into suborbital space going across the Pacific Ocean.

The test vehicle reportedly hit a pre-determined target about 200 miles southwest of Guam.  A team of analysts is studying the launch as part of an ongoing evaluation of the readiness of the U.S. military's arsenal.

It includes experts from the Department of Defense and the Department of Energy.
