US Space Force General Warns China Is Advancing Space Capabilities At Twice The Speed Of US Authored by Frank Fang via The Epoch Times, China could overtake the United States in terms of space capabilities by 2030 if America doesn't speed up its development, warned Gen.

During the Cold War, the Soviet Union developed the system of launching missiles with nuclear warheads into low Earth orbits before flying them to hit targets in the United States.

“The PRC [People's Republic of China] continues to develop counterspace capabilities-including direct ascent, co-orbital, electronic warfare, and directed energy capabilities-that can contest or deny an adversary's access to and operations in the space domain during a crisis or conflict,” the report states.

“China probably intends to pursue additional ASAT weapons capable of destroying satellites up to geosynchronous Earth orbit,” the report states.

Details of the second test haven't been reported.
