Russian ‘inspector’ closes in on NRO bird

In the last few days, a Russian 'inspector satellite' appears to have matched orbits with an American reconnaissance satellite to a degree of precision and proximity never seen before. I think this is unprecedented and alarming

Is that really an uncommon thing?

I would have thought all known espionage satellite's would have a counter-part tailing them. Well at least from the US side, is this a Russian first?

...sounds like a setup to a joke.

In Capitalist America satellite follows earth.
In Soviet Russia satellite follow satellite.

The Russians are simply doing what they do.

The only thing that's different today is that the information has become public.

This stuff happens all the time - it's de rigueur in sat space.

Why doesnt America alter its satellites direction and watch the Russian follow, add some Benny Hill music and watch the chase unfold.

Who the hell launches a Spy Satellite anyway, surely the idea is not to let the enemy know if its spying or just another TV satellite?

Who?

We all do.

Any nation with space capabilities has at least one sat up there who's purpose is to spy - on other sats, places on earth, etc.

More good info on the space race and weaponisation;

Always more to the story than many know at first.

Skylab

On Oct. 4, 1957, the Soviets launched the first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, into space.

The first U.S. satellite, Explorer 1, went into orbit on Jan. 31, 1958.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF SPACE EXPLORATION
The development of ballistic missiles, first used by Germany toward the end of World War II, paved the way for the launch vehicles that would fuel a space race between the Soviet Union and the United States. The space race was then followed by an era of space cooperation, highlighted by the International Space Station.

Never fails..

The subject matter could be about puppies and rainbows and someone with such bad TDS, would still have to make it about Trump, just to get the message across that they hate the guy..

Enough already..!!

"Nice of the Russians to use up their fuel to let us get a good look at their interceptor satellite."

Very interesting, thanks for the add.

What's even more impressive is the analysis and interpretation of the data, that alone is equally impressive as well.

Good job citizens.
