British press: confrontation between the United States, Russia and China in space could lead to a nuclear conflict

20

An arms race in space can lead to military clashes in low-earth orbit, which in turn will lead to a nuclear conflict. This is the conclusion reached by the author of an article published in the British edition of The Sun.


Currently, three world powers are fighting for space, hoping to establish control over near-earth space. According to the author, the main players in the space race are the United States, Russia and China, which, in addition to civilian satellites, launch military spacecraft into orbit.

Military satellites located in space are capable not only of destroying similar devices in orbit, but also of striking the earth's surface, destroying well-protected objects and equipment of a potential enemy. Now the countries participating in the race are busy creating the most powerful weapons to participate in a space war.

The seriousness of its intentions to achieve superiority in space is declared by the United States, which created the Space Force in 2019. Washington emphasizes that this step is aimed at leveling the threat to "US domination in space." In the opponents of the United States, of course, he points to Russia and China - two world powers that are actively developing space technologies.

It is possible that a space war is already being waged, the author writes. Russia has tested a special space-based anti-satellite weapon in space, and China is launching its own vehicles into orbit that can blind and destroy enemy satellites.

The space war waged in orbit will not be limited to outer space, the author is sure, and will most likely move to the earth's surface. Thus, the confrontation between the United States, Russia and China in space can lead to a nuclear war on Earth, he sums up.

    Until the mattress covers from the agreement on the non-placement of weapons in outer space are not released, you can sleep peacefully.
    But he's already curbing their appetites.
    We will wait.

        British press:

        Everything speaks for itself, they just have someone to play off ..
        And now we will explore space separately from the Naglo-Saxons .. There is no sense from them.
        Either a hole is drilled, or the toilet is clogged ...
        We signed an agreement with China, and together with them we can achieve a lot in space exploration than with these Pokémon ..

            Well, there is such a risk, all their space programs are still Soviet developments, which they impudently poked at during the collapse of the USSR .. But copying is not creativity, nevertheless ..
            China has money, we have the latest technologies and developments .. If we could combine all of this The dash into space would be like the first flight of Gagarin!
            We spend a lot on weapons, the United States is tearing and throwing ... Now, if we could free up funds, we could fly to Mars there too ..
            In the meantime, we are preparing for defense, the Anglo-Saxons have accumulated debts and will write them off by war, as usual .. And we in Russia do not want to pay with blood again

              A jerk for whom? Ours have already shown, despite the flow of American money, it is no longer possible to create new technologies. And just transfer all the technologies and developments to the Chinese, who have already steamed almost everything. Well, such a boost to the Chinese.

      They are afraid that Russia and China will unite and then the oligarchs will panic in London .. Because not only our thieves sit there and enjoy life, but there are also Chinese and much richer .. They are not given away!

    If we clash not childishly, then in a year over England there will be wooden launches, from which the survivors will catch radioactive cod.

      If Russia, the United States and China do not clash like a child, then the waves of the North Sea will splash over the larger GB territory.
      ==========
      Early on, the United States assigned itself to the "watch over the near space". They make noise at the first danger of being "damped". Only the USSR and the PRC were not the first to develop SDI and began to launch vehicles with secret missions into orbit. As for the Moon and the sale of sites on the satellite ... wassat

        Only not the USSR and not the PRC were the first to develop SDI

        What is SDI? From this soybeans something flew into space? And when the soybeans were conceived, the fighters of the IS satellites had already successfully fired off in space and were on alert. Yes, and the station "Almaz" fired a burst from a machine gun in space.
        So, if you don't know you don't need to write about who was the first and what did ...

    And the confrontation between Britain and Russia in Ukraine, directly, cannot. The British Special Operations Forces are a nuclear weapon.

    Nuclear space tug "Zeus", which is now being created at KB "Arsenal", allows placing a radar of up to 200 kW of power in high orbit, to illuminate all air and low-orbit aircraft in an area with a radius of 4 300 km, with subsequent transmission in real time information to the country's air defense forces.
