    North Korea appears to be preparing for a possible intercontinental ballistic missile test within the next 48 to 96 hours, just as President Joe Biden is scheduled to travel to Asia, according to a US official familiar with the latest intelligence assessment. "The things we have noticed in the past for a launch are the things we are noticing now," the official said. The launch site under satellite observation is located near Pyongyang. The official would not detail specifics of the current imagery, but typically, intelligence analysts look for signs of scaffolding or other launcher equipment, fueling, vehicles and personnel....

    Vice President Harris on Monday announced the U.S. will avoid testing anti-satellite missiles, urging other nations to follow the lead of the Biden administration after a Russian test last November created a field of debris in space. Harris announced the self-imposed ban on the tests, known as direct-ascent anti-satellite missile testing, during a visit to Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. Administration officials expressed hope that the policy would become an international norm for other nations to abide by, calling the anti-satellite missile tests “one of the most pressing threats to the security and sustainability of space.”

    The Russia-Ukraine war is changing the very foundations of the global order. As the debris settle, we will see a more militarised Europe & a more multipolar world with repercussions for India's interests as well, writes Dr. Swasti Rao Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine is likely to be a hinge point in contemporary history. It has shown that brute power politics and the threat of war can very well be unleashed in the most developed, democratic and industrialised parts of the world. The concomitant background of the rather overdone ‘conflicting sphere of influence’ debate does not explain the unfolding ground situation....

    In the latest incident, a potential high-profile defection from China leaves open the possibility of the West getting inside information into one of Beijing’s most advanced hypersonic weapons. China’s Stringent State Secret Laws China’s state secret laws cover almost everything starting from industry data, all the way to the exact birth dates of state leaders. Information can even be designated as a state secret retroactively. There is a wide range of punishments for leaking such sensitive information. In the most serious cases, a life sentence or death penalty can be doled out. For instance, in 2016, a Chinese computer technician...

    BEIJING—As the arms race between the United States and China heats up, Beijing has unveiled its deadliest weapon yet: an ICBM that can be launched through space and then fly over America playing Dave Chappelle jokes. China tested the missile with a launch into U.S. airspace earlier this week. We would have shot it down, but our generals were too busy in a CRT training seminar led by four-star Admiral Rachel Levine. "We're doomed! Everyone run for your lives!" screamed one liberal in San Francisco as the missile flew overhead playing his latest special. "He's saying things that are off-color...

He builds rockets with the help of his friends and the encouragement of his teacher Miss Riley. Homer’s final rocket launch could be seen for miles and miles. We were always proud to be Americans. Recently, the proud Chinese military also: launched a rocket (DF-17) carrying a hypersonic glide vehicle that flew through low-orbit space, circling the globe before cruising towards its target, which it missed by two...
