US Air Force experts analyze strange incidents in near-earth orbit: someone or something destroys satellites, tearing them to pieces, reports spacenews.com.
The US military reported the destruction of the Chinese weather satellite Yunhai 1-02. Considering that the device was launched into orbit only a year and a half ago, this incident looks very strange.
It is noteworthy that a week earlier, at the same altitude of 800 kilometers, the US meteorological apparatus NOAA-17, which had worked for about 20 years, also exploded.
It looks strange that both destroyed vehicles were simply torn to pieces.
Some experts believe that the detonation of the batteries occurred on the satellites, however, it is difficult to say what exactly led to this event.
Other researchers do not exclude the start of space war, and now it is worth strengthening control over the movement of satellites.
