Recent from CGTN:
CGTN published this video item, entitled “2021/07/20 DARC in space: New arms race?” – below is their description.
Amid concerns over a new arms race in space, the U.S. military is developing Deep Space Advanced Radar Capability – or DARC – a vast radar system able to track targets up to 36,000 kilometers away. While the U.S. claimed the purpose in building DARC is to understand “what’s going on in the dark corners of space,” it still raises a huge question of whether it has the potential to alter the direction of global military competition – and this time – in space. What’s behind U.S. efforts to develop apparent space warfare capabilities? Is space indeed fast becoming a war-fighting domain? What should other space-faring nations, including China, do to safeguard security beyond the planet? #SpaceCGTN YouTube Channel
