    This is from 2012:
    Tomgram: Alfred McCoy, Super Weapons and Global Dominion | TomDispatch

    "It’s 2025 and an American “triple canopy” of advanced surveillance and armed drones fills the heavens from the lower- to the exo-atmosphere. A wonder of the modern age, it can deliver its weaponry anywhere on the planet with staggering speed, knock out an enemy’s satellite communications system, or follow individuals biometrically for great distances. Along with the country’s advanced cyberwar capacity, it’s also the most sophisticated militarized information system ever created and an insurance policy for U.S. global dominion deep into the twenty-first century. It’s the future as the Pentagon imagines it; it’s under development; and Americans know nothing about it."​

    You know, I never thought of that. I suppose one day there will be one - unless we do something stupid and cede everything to the cockroaches.

    That is something I could see as quite possible given the right conditions...

    All this is fine and good, but destroy a few more satellites in LEO and LEO will become a field of shrapnel that will kill all LEO satellites and space capabilities.

    The Indian ASAT test is a good example.

    Kill a few more and it hits critical mass as they lose control of damaged satellites and the dead satellites start bouncing into each other.

    For example, an Iridium satellite was killed by a dead Russian satellite.

    Since the US has the most satellite capability for China or Russia to make space unusable is a good move in a conflict.

    Would make future space travel dangerous.

    The thought of mass satellite destruction makes me cringe.
    It is a real and likely threat, I think.
    Yikes!

    Where Do Satellites Get Their Power From?

    Avoiding collisions in space

    In some cases, satellites have to be moved to avoid collision with space debris. Space debris includes everything from screws and bolts to larger chunks of spacecraft. This risk is highest for the Metop satellites which are operating in Low Earth Orbit at around 820km where most of the debris is.


    It is bad enough now that satellites are shortening their lifespans using fuel to avoid debris.

    The ISS has to move once in a while - but it is so low that atmospheric drag has mostly cleared its orbit, which also means it has to burn fuel to maintain its orbit.

    If the ISS was moved to a high parking orbit it would get pinged by debris occasionally.

    Satellites like Iridium are in the heart of the debris belt (800 km).

    GPS satellites are halfway to a Geosynchronous orbit and wouldn't see a lot of action.

    It's post like this that make this site. Just the fact that it's Ted Cruz talking about space pirates speaks volumes. See the powers that be are aware that there is a grass roots effort to break the crime cabals monopoly on freedom. So what good ole boy Teddy is doing is trying to lay the groundwork for why we need to regulate who get to go where in space. Don't ya see it's all about maintaining absolute control over you and your freedom, it's even coming down to where these insane lunatics are now planning how to prevent you from escaping their authority even in outer space.

    Space force to fight aliens? How about watch towers to prevent escape instead? Seriously they can invent anything and the average idiot just gulps it down. So ya see, even if we do succeed in creating our own antigravity ships, by the time we get there these criminals will have created a barbed wire fence with machine guns around the planet to prevent escape, and why you ask, well because you're a pirate obviously.

    See they know by way of monitoring the internet that antigravity is a grass roots effort planetary wide. They know that it's a matter of time before it becomes real, and they know it because they have had it for over 80 years. They probably have already mapped the Milkyway Galaxy. That's how great their crimes truly are. Just imagine what kind of monsters must be in control if we are all being kept here locked up on this mud ball in space while they travel among the stars already.

    Barbary Coast Space Pirates maybe. Thomas Jefferson would get it. Once you get past the snickering there is a point to consider.

    Earth orbit is the military high ground and holding valuable assets under threat of seizure or destruction is an old game. Privatization makes access to those assets more probable. Exactly what a Space Force could do and how is an open question. Probably not Moonraker but when you consider the environments that specially trained operators currently function in to perform all sorts of clandestine missions it really isn't that much of a stretch.

    Admittedly this sounds odd but if there were an incident of some kind then guaranteed the world would turn to the US military and wonder what they are going to do about it because it would be naturally assumed they can.

    How many vessel do we have?...

    US Space Command will launch this month, ahead of Trump's Space Force

    WASHINGTON – The Space Force is getting closer to launch. Speaking at Tuesday's meeting of the National Space Council, Vice President Mike Pence and Pentagon officials announced that a key step in creating the newest branch of the military would happen next week.

    The U.S. Space Command officially starts Aug. 29, serving as the launching pad for the Space Force, they said. Air Force Gen. John Raymond has been tapped and confirmed by the Senate as its first leader.

    "The United States Space Force will ensure that our nation is prepared to defend our people, defend our interests, and to defend our values in the vast expanse of space and here on Earth with the technologies that will support our common defense for the vast reaches of outer space," Pence said.
