Russia’s Defence Ministry said on Saturday a U.S. plan to shoot down an ailing spy satellite could be used as a cover to test a new space weapon.
The ministry said there was insufficient proof that Washington’s decision to fire a missile at the disabled satellite was to prevent a potentially deadly leak of toxic gas as it re-entered Earth’s atmosphere.
What a shame.
Russia and China would rather have America negotiate an unenforceable “NO SPACE WEAPONS” treaty so that OUR research would be curtailed while they attempt to steal OUR technology to develop their own anti-satellite systems.
By the way, Flap is positive that the United States does possess other space weapons, including high energy generated lasers – remember those?
