Russia has a thriving business launching satellites for other nations. It has even been ferrying astronauts to the International Space Station. Russia handles a lot of launches every year for its own space program and under contract to other countries.
Last week I blogged about a Chinese space launch that was feared to be a weapon of some sort. China is not the only country that may be working on space weapons. The U.S. military has been launching "robotic spaceplanes" on multiple test missions lately.
I began this blog with a series of articles about the Chinese space program. There was a recent Chinese launch that caught the attention of the global media. The U.S. Department of Defense has issued a warning about what they consider to be a Chinese "destructive" space program.
I have been posting lately about private space companies.
