Russia planning space-based nuclear weapon to target satellites, US Congress told

Russia is reportedly developing a space-based nuclear weapon designed to disable or destroy satellites. 

The United States Congress and America’s European allies were informed of Russia’s plans to develop the anti-satellite capability on Wednesday (Feb. 14). It’s unclear what the exact nature of the planned weapon is — that is, whether it involves detonating a nuclear explosive in space or is anti-satellite technology powered by a space-based nuclear reactor.
