Chinese satellite and mysterious object

China sent a satellite to space in October Shijian-21, which is designed to explore new ways to remove space debris.

Shortly after the satellite found itself in orbit, the United States did detected and noted the presence of another object who found himself nearby. At first, it was assumed that it was the body of a rocket whose task was to take the satellites to the planned location (apogee kick engine – AKM), but the object remained near the satellite, which is not customary.

The unusual situation brought more questions than answers, and experts are no longer so sure that it is part of a rocket. Since China is not open when it comes to space activities, it is possible that the world will never know what it is about.

Experts are concerned that and China and Russia are testing anti-satellite technologies, which many are already counting on in the new Cold War. The possibility of removing enemy satellites would certainly give an country an advantage in the clash. However, it cannot be claimed with certainty that the new facility has exactly that task, so the world has no choice but to observe carefully.
