Mystery surrounds plans to build Chinese military 'space station'... on land in Argentina

2 posts in this topic

A secret Chinese 'space station' built deep in Argentina's Patagonia region could be finished by the end of the year.  

Four years ago leaders from the two countries worked on a deal to build the 'Deep Space Station'.

The counties have talked about a 'ground station in the Southern Hemisphere' to support the program for 'moon exploration and other space activities'

But there are concerns the base will have a more military focus than one of space exploration.

There's a video and pics at the link. Just think, all the countries weaponize space and all they have to do is zap whatever they want from on high. The militarization of everything is now.

That is just the tip of the iceberg. Russia and China have the capabilities to end life as we know it right now. The next world war will be fought from space.

 

Military Space Leaders Alarmed by Growing Russian and Chinese Anti-Satellite Threats

The latest intelligence from Russia and China is alarming top military and civilian space officials about multiple new antisatellite (ASAT) threats against U.S. military and intelligence satellites—at all altitudes. Key commercial satcoms and other civilian satellites are also at great risk.

The Pentagon says both Iran and North Korea are also developing new ASAT systems.

Air Force Gen. John Hyten, commander of Air Force Space Command, told the House Armed Service Strategic Subcommittee that threats to American satellites “have reached a tipping point.”

“Simply stated, there isn’t a single aspect of our space architecture, to include the ground architecture, that isn’t now at risk,” Lt. Gen. David Buck, commander of the Joint Functional Component for Space at U.S. Strategic Command told a subcommittee hearing in mid-March.

And speaking before a recent aerospace forum, the head of Strategic Command Navy Admiral Cecil D. Haney also sharply warned that space threats are evolving so fast that, if employed now, they “potentially threaten national sovereignty and survival.”

“After years of post-Cold War stagnation, our adversaries have become re-energized and re- motivated to challenge our long-held advantage in space and cyberspace. We must take decisive action now, “ said Hyten.

“The rise of foreign capability is jeopardizing our technological superiority,” Dyke Weatherington, the Director for Space, and Strategic and Intelligence Systems for the Defense Dept. told the subcommittee.

Russia is testing a new “Nudol” direct ascent ASAT that has flown at least three times in the last few months, including one successful test flown last Nov. 18. Russia has also conducted many more, cyber, directed energy, and suborbital tests that remain classified, lest it reveal top secret U. S. monitoring capability.

China has conducted at least eight ASAT tests since 2005. But many more tests such as directed energy and cyber attack exercises remain classified by the Intelligence Community. These tests have used different launch vehicles and trajectories, including co orbital ASATS. The most recent of the eight was a high altitude test last October.

The Strategic Subcommittee and its witnesses went into a closed session to review top secret data from the specific weapons systems arrayed against U.S. spacecraft.

“We face unprecedented threats in national security space.,” said subcommittee chairman Mike Rogers (R-Al).
