“The United States on Monday condemned a Russian anti-satellite test against one of its own satellites that the U.S. said created a field of more than 1,500 pieces of debris that could remain in orbit for decades and pose a threat to other satellites. The State Department criticized the Russian test as another example of what it said was Russia’s ‘dangerous and irresponsible behavior’ in its space military operations. … The new test involved the destruction of an orbiting satellite by a ground-based missile, that is a technology previously tested by Russia and China. In July 2020, the U.S. strongly criticized another Russian anti-satellite test involving a different anti-satellite technology as a ‘killer satellite’ deployed a projectile in the direction of another satellite.” (11/15/21)
