In other words: Testing complete. Passed with flying colors.


U.S. will halt tests of anti-satellite missiles, but we will still have them.


About time, the US, Russia, China, and India have all demonstrated that they can do this. No need to showcase anymore. Every nation must stop this.


The US successfully tested anti-sat missiles in the 1980’s. It’s likely that they either still have the capability, or have determined that they are not an effective way of accomplishing the objective at hand. The latter is more likely, in my opinion. The US has so much money invested in space that blowing things up in LEO is simply too risky.


They work, no need to pollute LEO with shrapnel. Yet.
