I've been thinking about space exploration lately, but what about spacecraft meant for warfare? I know that there has been a treaty not allowing nuclear weapons or any other weapon of mass destruction to be placed in space, but what about military space stations? And conventional weapons I think are allowed, such as launching planes built to withstand the vaccum of space for space-to-space warfare or for space-to-ground warfare. Yes, a military space-station orbiting the Earth could be used to launch spacecraft for that purpose. Also, particle beams, and laser technologies are being developed for conventional use, but lasers don't work too well in the atmosphere, but work in a vaccum like space. Indeed, we do have the technology to conduct war in space and probably the manufacturing capability. But, do we have the money? Yes, I am sure it is possible, but can we pay for it? I'm not really encouraging war in space, I'm just seeing if it is possible and I think it is.
What do you think of this?
