this is actually more like theft in the name of hi-tec than any real attempt to produce anything. as long as the most favored contractor keeps delivering them bags of $$$ they get a billion dollar contract to reasearch a dead end. besides we all know the attack will come from the low tec end. we need a space based device that can "whack" camels from LEO--LOL just wait till you see chainey running down the street dragging a bail of $$$ behind him !--LOL i'm sure Ol Ben L is shakeing in his boots cause he thinks the star wars is going to KO his plans for a space conquest !!--LOL maybe i should p...

Technology is greatly advancing each week, it's scary that we don't ever really know what will be next in line. Even so, space treaties have made it illegal to weaponize space, that have been signed by many countries, including the US. Why not be ready for it though? As the Chinese have already said they have developed anti-satellite capabilities and such, shows they are working on it as well. As for Russia, I... [More]

taking out a sat in a LEO is much much less difficult than taking out a icbm. or locating a mobile GT. for one thing you know when a satellite is is about to fly over . hell we had stuff that could KO them 30 years ago. sure we got sats that can read the plates on a buick from LEO . but the sat has got to know where to look . another thing orbital devices are very very vulnerable to attack . sure technology is a great thing however how many dead ends will the taxpayer have to endure ? jez--star wars?1980's remember that one ? name one thing developed that could be used in a real war ? this thi...

If space becomes privatized, what's going to stop some rich crazy folk from putting up super massive billboards in the sky? Or putting some advertisement on the surface of the moon? If this privatization does happen then I'm sure there'll be a whole lot more space junk in the sky. Maybe that's a good thing. 'Cause those space missles will probably end up blowing up some super massive advertisement of Benny Hinn or something to that effect.
