Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “China is rapidly becoming a 'tremendous threat' in the solar system, says US Space Force leader”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The vice chief of operations at the US Space Force warned that China is rapidly expanding its space capabilities and may soon overpower the US. 

While Gen. David Thompson told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace the US is still the world leader in space operations, China is on track to surpass the country. 

"I don't think it's a foregone conclusion they will be the leader in space at the end of the decade, but they are on an incredible pace," Thompson told Wallace.

China is already launching twice as many satellites into space as the US. Thompson called this advancement a "tremendous threat."

"Our capabilities are the best in the world of space, but they're moving aggressively," Thompson said. "They're moving quickly and we need to adapt our approach."
