                  “The Mo You Know “

If you don’t keep up with space stuff the following is some info of interest.
The US, corporate and military, has over 1000 satellites in space, The military alone has over 200 military defense satellites. US is in a panic race with Russia and China in the space race. Of interest, China recently destroyed one of it’ s outdated satellites via laser fired from one of it’s orbiting satellites. Russia recently released three smaller satellites from one orbiting satellite and then controlled and maneuvered the three little ones close to one of our military satellites.  US Space Force registered a complaint to Russia and the three littler ones were repositioned  away from our defense satellite. Practically everything we do today is either controlled or monitored from orbiting satellites.
As man and humanity has advanced over thousands of years conflict has always followed  It’s only a matter of time in the space race. Many people including officials in government laughed and snickered when Trump announced the Space Force, but in reality the Space Force is vital ally important to our way of life and our defense.
