Senior Colonel Yao Yunzhu, 52, brought up China's recent successful test of an anti-satellite weapon during a World Economic Forum. The director of the Asia-Pacific Office at the Academy of Military Science in Beijing said, "My prediction: Outer space is going to be weaponized in our lifetime."
"My wish is we really want to keep space as a peaceful place for human beings," she said, adding that China would like all countries to come to a consensus that space should be used only for peaceful purposes."
AGI provided a powerful animation w/sound of the anti-satellite test and the challenges posed by the weapon debris in orbit. Timothy Keating, commander of U.S. Northern Command noted, ""This is a cause for concern ... In executing this test they have created potential significant problems for international space flight."
