Other Nations Fear Launch Of New Arms Race In Space
There's a new space race brewing... and it echoes many of the
fears that resonated in the late 1950s as the United States and
Russia sent their first rockets into orbit. This time,
however, it's China stoking those worries.
Russia's Progress 24, an unmanned Russian cargo ship, lifted off
the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the Kazakh Steppes in the early morning
hours on Thursday atop a Soyuz launch vehicle enroute to the
International Space Station for a replenishment mission.
