A really nice article analyzing China’s space ambitions as well as the competition from other regional powers. If you read between the lines there are some real opportunities for the US to engage in cooperation in this arena with other non-Chinese space agencies. (Post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

It may eventually happen.  India seems to be moving away from Russia and China and more toward the US.  This is good news for them and us.

Australia and India are committing to closer joint military cooperation.  Both countries realize the danger the CCP represents.  Taking these steps now may prevent worse problems later.

US/India space cooperation

During his recent visit, the President praised the recent accomplishments of the Indian space agency and pledged greater cooperation between the countries.  This was the right move for several reasons. The Indians are rightly proud of their achievements in space, particularly in regard to lunar exploration.  Cooperation between the world’s democracies will lead to quicker advancements in space, which we need.

The F-21 (no, not the Kfir)

Lockheed is looking to sell an F-16/F-35 hybrid to India.  Frankly, I’d be shocked if they are successful.  However, India is a huge weapons market, so I understand the desire.

It appears that India has joined the ASAT club.  Next to nukes, IMHO, having an ASAT capability will come to define what is a first rate military power in the future.  I predict that in the not too distant future, we’ll see a war where the participants go after each others satellites.
