China’s space operation poses an ‘incredible threat’, US must adapt, Space Force general says

China’s space capabilities are moving at an ‘aggressive’ pace, Space Force general says

China’s space operation is outpacing the U.S. two to one, posing an “incredible threat” that may make the nation the leading superpower in space by the end of the decade if the U.S. doesn’t adapt its approach, the vice chief of the U.S. Space Force warned on Sunday.

Gen. David Thompson appeared on “Fox News Sunday,” telling anchor Chris Wallace that while the U.S. is “still the best in the world” in the new frontier, China is on an “incredible pace,” confirming that it is launching twice as many satellites into space as the U.S.
