here's the link to the article:
Doesn't anyone find it fishy that despite what NASA, STRATCOM and other space agencies calls "a very low risk" and "the risk is considered very low", two satellites just happened to collide very spectacularly, and not just a glancing blow.
There is lots of space junk in orbit, but relatively few satellites. How come two of them just happened to hit each other so accurately?
Anybody think it may be the US trying to disable a Russian spy satellite before it uncovered something important? A anti satellite missile launch would be detected visually and by radar by countries all over the world. Making a very old, near-worthless satellite take out another may not be such a crazy proposition in this case.
The Cold war is over you say, but still, it doesn't mean the US isn't testing out a new improvised satellite weapon. After all, there are more and more old defunct satellites in orbit, most with a small amount of maneuvering fuel left, the US might as well take the hint from Iraq and create some ISKs of their own. (Improvised satellite killers)
This may actually be a salvage of the "star wars" plan they were floating around to scare the USSR during the Cold War.
What are your theories?
Do you think mine is even possible to pull off?
