The Space Race

The U.S. needs to improve its satellite presence in the Southern Hemisphere to better track launches from Asia, even as officials work to improve relations with Beijing, according to U.S. military officials.

Kevin Chilton, head of U.S. Strategic Command, said the U.S. wants to better understand where China is heading as it improves its space and satellite capabilities. Chilton, who met with senior Chinese military leaders last week, described strains on the Pentagon's space program that are forcing commanders to push satellites and other equipment beyond their designed life span and to press for schedules that allow no room for launch failures.
