They left a LOT of wiggle room in that treaty when they wrote it. No nuclear weapons. You can have a kinetic bombardment system, but nuclear weapons are bad, mmkay.


good thing we don't have a kinetic bombardment system up there as it's officially only a "feasibility".

And if anyone did put weapons into orbit, would anyone make a big deal about it? I mean, wouldn't all parties not really want to raise a stink in the hopes of preventing a public disclosure of their technologies?

Hopefully you've never driven your truck sideways.

one would think that tight lips keep butts puckered when you have something like the x-37b flying around up there. I am convinced the Chinese are looking to mitigate SBW's and have counter satellite tactics already planned.

Why mess with kinetic bombardment when you can do so much better.

Not sure the X-37B carries weapons or messes with enemy satellites.

I'm not either. (although I wouldn't be shocked) I was more inferring the current technology we're strutting around.

hey I like lasers as much as the next guy... especially when they're on frickin' sharks but what can I say..I like big holes in the ground and impact waves.

some laser LIKE things DO put big holes in the ground and create messy waves of destruction.

FYI, it was actually tested successfully, but was deemed too cost-prohibitive with operational logistics.
