US believes Russia's recently launched satellite can inspect and attack other satellites in low Earth orbit.

Time to ready a refuge.

Unless the satellites have IFF I think that could be a difficult job…

Yes, IFF should be a standard. And besides them Russkies don't have a Space Force … AFAIK.

yes, the Russkies do have a Space Force, which was found almost 30 years ago. Trump has having the US play catch-up by creating the US Space Force, totally needed and for which he was mercilessly mocked.

Didn't realize the Russians had a Space Force. But yes, creating our own Space Force, albeit late to the game. IMO this will prove to be a good move. It is one of those considerations as we know sooner, or later Space will play a bigger role than it does now. But yes, there was some mocking, etc. of this, but most of those would mock anything and everything the former administration did.

I wonder, after re-reading the post title, maybe the Russians should have called their satellite 'Hedgehog'!
