    Russian Military Satellite Stalking A New U.S. Spy Satellite

    -

    The war in space is the most important of all. Trump knew it, Spaceforce.

    -

    A recently launched Russian satellite with capabilities unknown is getting suspiciously close to what is reportedly a new U.S. spy satellite



    Russia has launched satellite 14F150 Nivelir into orbit under a mission dubbed Kosmos-2558, and its current orbital path could soon place it in close proximity to what is reported to be the spy satellite designated USA-326. Unconfirmed rumors that the asset will serve as an 'inspector' satellite to covertly spy on nearby spacecraft have begun to circulate online following the launch and would line up with Russia’s known on-orbit anti-satellite weapons capabilities and developments.

    The Kosmos-2558 satellite was launched on August 1 at 20:25 UTC from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Russia as a payload on the Soyuz-2.1v rocket. Kosmos-2558, which the Russian Ministry of Defense itself said is a military satellite in an official statement, was then deployed into a Sun-Synchronous Orbit (SSO), which pertains to satellites that travel over the polar regions of the globe so their orbital paths are synchronous with the Sun. Its exact purpose is unknown at present, but it has been described as an "inspector" satellite, a term that is often associated with so-called “killer satellites.”

    Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.

    I wonder if Russian satellites work any better than their army and navy?

    Marxists, Socialists, Democrats, Russians, and the legacy media.

    They lie all the time. They lie about everything.

    They know they are lying. We know they are lying. They know we know they are lying.

    They lie anyway. It's what they do.

    Yup and the army and navy operate better than ours. Remember, we had to hire Russia to send and retrieve our astronauts from the space station until SpaceX came along.

    I can't help wondering if the powers-to-be are following Rule #34 "War is good for Business." And Rule #35 "Peace is good for business." The rest of us are just pawns in their schemes.

    Had to look that up to find out that there are 285 Rules of Acquisition for the Ferengi:

    Otherwise....well, let's just say that that's not the only definition for Rule 34.

    As you would know I have the book the Rules of Acquisition.

    But seriously, I'm reading a novel I have on Rule #34 and of course, the Ferengi have orchestrated a war to make profits that eventually the Ferengi also orchestrate to have peace that they also make profits. Can't help think this novel is more reality than we think in light of Ukraine/Russia and China/Taiwan.

    "Snugglers" are not typically to kill the other satellite. It's purpose may be to get close enough to hack into its system for any of the obvious reasons. And simple jamming of the system is a possibility too. It can also be to take photos of our satellite to determine its capability.

    Yep... it's warfare. Ours is up there spying on the Russians. Obviously, they don't like it.
