    US Intelligence Agencies Warn War in Space is Coming

    For now, most of the space weaponry involves disarming, destroying, or hijacking enemy satellites. Giant death lasers are on the way, though, don’t worry. Satellites are what give battlefield advantage to modern militaries, providing GPS and communications networks, surveillance capabilities, and probably even some seriously crazy space-based firepower we don’t even know about yet. Those satellites are relied upon by military forces during conflicts, making them prime targets for adversaries.

    According to a new report published by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Russia and China are only a few years away from having operational anti-satellite technology designed to reduce the advantages of the American military.

    The report also states that “the risk of interstate conflict, including among great powers, is higher than at any time since the end of the Cold War.” Space Wars, here we come.

    This new report was published by the intelligence community and presented to congressional intelligence and armed forces committees.

    In the view of intelligence analysts, the United States’ closest rivals for world hegemony are fast at work preparing for space to be the pivotal battlefield in the next global conflict:

    Both countries are already training their soldiers how to launch and operate antisatellite (ASAT) weapons and are launching what the report describes as “experimental satellites” designed for use in warfare despite both China and Russia’s government both publicly claiming space should be a peaceful domain.

    The Russians have lately been launching covert satellites from remote launching stations over the past few years, while their known “killer” satellites have been waking up lately, worrying some defense analysts that a satellite war could be likely.

    China, meanwhile, has been testing ASAT weapons since 2007, and the United States, of course, have been doing some shadowy aerospace stuff and secret testing in orbit lately too.

    Destroying satellites creates huge debris fields that put other space assets at risk.

    Somehow I prefer they wage their wars in space and not down here on earth..

    Sat wars, space robo wars.. just fine, he

    Very costly, and not a single drop of blood spilled

    And its good for their industries aswell..

    I would think aliens would view anything in the Earth's magnetosphere as part of the planet. It extended 65,000 kilometers or 40,000 miles.

    I guess if we blow up enough technology in orbit the debris will accumulate to a point where space travel will be extremely difficult to accomplish...

    Looks like this now. Maybe we need a war out there to clean it up. How the hell do Aliens get thru all that ?

    Thats an uranium atom with orbiting electrons.

    They call NORAD on VHF radio channel #16 before every visit to upload the latest debris maps.

    Yes but our footprint in space is extremely small so it is something...
