Report: Russia Tests Anti-Satellite Weapon

CNN reports that “Russia has recently tested what is believed to be an anti-satellite weapon, US sources with knowledge of the test told CNN.”

“The Russian test, coming as President-elect Donald Trump prepares to enter the White House next month, could be seen as a provocative demonstration of Moscow’s capability in space.”
