Spy sats, GPS sats...........
These are components of weapons.
Military hardware has been in space for decades and it's not going to stop.
Just because the actual bomb doesn't drop from orbit, doesn't mean there are no weapons in space????
Also, the military tends to look down from space, and it's the scientists that look up from Earth. If an alien armada is coming are way, it won't be
the military that detects it. It will be a fluke that we detect it at all.
What sort of weapons would you suggests we deploy to defend ourselves???
Any weapon that America puts into space will be pointing down. And I don't think nukes will be the weapon of choice. Maybe tungsten rods dropped from
on high at very high speeds.
At this point in our development, and with the current political climate on Planet Earth, the Americans have more to worry about than defending our
shores from aliens that may or may not exist.
