China Shoots Down Another Satellite

An anonymous reader writes “It was reported this weekend that China shot down another of its satellites in January this year. ‘The website of Hong Kong-based Phoenix TV said the anti-satellite missile test, if confirmed, is likely related to the missile interception test, which occurred at the peak of a dispute between Beijing and Washington on a massive US arms sales deal to Taiwan. During the interception test, US agencies spotted two missiles launched from two locations from the Chinese mainland, colliding outside the atmosphere, a Pentagon spokesperson said.’ I guess ballistic trajectories that intersect with orbital ones don’t count as ‘weapons in space.’”
