The Biden administration; living in an alternate universe

Kamala Harris announces US will no longer conduct anti-satellite missile tests

  • The Biden administration is setting the self-imposed ban as part of a goal to make it an 'international norm for responsible behavior in space,' Harris said
  • The new declaration comes after Russia in November conducted an anti-satellite missile test to destroy its Cosmos-1408 satellite
  • The explosion generated a cloud of at least 1,500 pieces of trackable debris that threatened the International Space Station
  • Harris, who chairs the National Space Council, made the announcement during a speech at the Vandenberg Space Force Base
