What would your reaction to this announcement be? What do you think the world’s reaction to this announcement to this would be? How would the international community take it?
Additionally, as an aside continuation:
Tomorrow (i.e. 19 June 2013) at 1100 GMT, this poor African country then goes and actually launches five satellites in its backyard from intriguing “mobile launchers”. The satellites then go into successful orbit and are functioning impeccably. They are up to the standard of even the very best US communications satellites.
With this in mind, what would your reaction now be? How would we as humans take this? How would the international community take this news?
