A Coming War in Space?

Matter of fact, while the article states Russia and America have agreed not to attack each other satellites, it’s only half correct. Only America has suicidally abided by the agreement while Russia cheats as usual. Russia has within the last few years launched a space weapons program where satellites are designed and built to destroy American space-based systems. The following articles are proof enough:

Whispers about Russia’s so-called ‘satellite killer’ grow louder

The Aug. 3 segment gave an interesting look at the command based at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado, as well as its subordinate units and its leaders, including Gen. John Hyten, whom we covered earlier this year at the annual Space Symposium.

Besides cool footage of the laser firing at the Starfire Optical Range in Albuquerque, New Mexico (the laser helps a telescope better track adversary satellites), the segment was noteworthy for its discussion of the possible coming war in space — and America’s limited ability to thwart attacks against its most prized spacecraft in geosynchronous orbit.Without assets in space to provide GPS coordinates to precision-guided bombs, imagery from drones and communication links to troops, among other advantages, “You go back to World War II. You go back to Industrial Age warfare,” Hyten told the CBS News program. Continue reading

Mysterious Russian satellite, Object 2014-28E, raises fears we may be on the edge of a space arms race

Putting it on a ‘watchlist’ will not make the problem go away, nor defend anything. As mentioned in a post just yeseterday, they’re likely camouflaging themselves in space junk and now that seems to be the case. The Chinese have already launched satellites with robotic arms. The United States is seemingly at its highest point of vulnerability in its entire history.

 

A STRANGE new Russian satellite has the US and NATO nervous: It’s not doing what satellites normally do, sparking fears it is really a secret “star wars” killer.

When originally launched back in May, Western observers thought the strange signal in orbit was simply some wayward debris from a normally scheduled Russian military rocket launch.

Perhaps they were supposed to.

But now, it’s shifting orbits. It’s under power, and its purpose remains unknown.
