With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
The International Space Station, seen in an undated file photo, was reportedly endangered when the Russians destroyed a satellite over the weekend during a secret weapons test. (Business Wire / AP) It seems that Russia carried out an anti-satellite weapons test this weekend and it is now causing problems for the International Space Station.
There is now a field of debris in Earth’s orbit that could be dangerous to the ISS.
The Daily Mail reported that the ISS is passing through the debris every 90 minutes. Though the seven astronauts, two of whom are Russian, aboard are safe, they are having to take precautions and remain in their capsules.
“We are actively working to characterize the debris field and will continue to ensure all space-faring nations have the information necessary to maneuver satellites if impacted,” a Space Command spokesperson said to CNN . “We are also in the process of working with the interagency, including the State Department and NASA, concerning these reports and will provide an update in the near future.”
Most are quite certain at this point that Russia is to blame. According to Reuters , Russia seemed to be aiming its anti-satellite weapons test at one of its own targets, but shattering satellites like that can cause immense danger to anything in orbit.
“Russia’s dangerous and irresponsible behavior jeopardizes the long-term sustainability of … outer space and clearly demonstrates that Russia’s (claims) to oppose the weaponization of space are disingenuous and hypocritical,” State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters.
Neither the Russian military nor the ministry of defense has commented on the situation.
Russia has been launching these anti- satellite tests for some time now.
In July of 2020, the United States Space Command reported that they had “evidence that Russia conducted a non-destructive test of a space-based anti-satellite weapon.”Russia’s development and testing of these weapons is an open risk to the U.S.“The Russian satellite system used to conduct this on-orbit weapons test is the same satellite system that we raised concerns about earlier this year, when Russia maneuvered near a U.S. government satellite,” Gen. John W. Raymond, Commander of U.S. Space Command and […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
