    "Killer Satellites"

    Russia apparently now has these things in orbit, they can be moved around by remote control and attack and destroy enemy satellites or other space objects with lasers and such; they first tested them in 2015, and just turned them on again recently:
    Secret mission of Kosmos-2504
    Russia's 'Killer Satellites' Re-Awaken

    Crazy... Warfare is now moving into some scifi shit I don't even understand...
    Thanks from Madeline

    Coolio.

    Not the weapons capacity so much as the space science progress.

    Elon Musk's company, SpaceX, might well be a hot stock, eh?

    Not to nitpick but how else do you move things in orbit besides remote control?

    I suppose they could man them all.

    As to your OP many of us love it.

    Technology is great and I can't wait until warfare is just a battle of robots and we are quickly getting there.
    Thanks from The Man

    They are doing extremely well.

    Have you watched them land a reusable rocket yet?

    Nope. I'll admit, I don't follow astronomy news like I could.

    Take a quick look, they have done something that even NASA couldn't do.

    What this means is simply astounding. It means we can travel to space for a tenth of the cost currently.

    This is what makes Elon Musk probably the greatest inventor of our time.

    Thanks from The Man
