Must mean we’ve tested enough and are positive we can drop a satellite if need be


To be clearer, the US is proposing a ban on destructive tests. Not all ASAT testing needs to involve destruction of a satellite.


Well, US spy satellites are a thorn in the side of world’s other major powers, so this is an understandable position for them to take, but I doubt Russia, China, and others will be that willing. They’re tired of their troop movements and concentration camps being photographed from space.


You don’t need tests once you’ve been successful.


Have we actually tested any anti-satellite missiles or was that just China?
