The United States is in a titanic struggle with the People’s Republic of China for the dominance of space.
Although the Americans have been to the moon and sent multiple, advanced probes to the surface of Mars, since the end of the Cold War, U.S. space policy has languished in neutral. Due to this, new competitors, namely China, have arisen to challenge the dominance of the Americans in the ultimate strategic high ground of space.

Most of that stuff will turn into spacejunk at the next major solar storm that will hit the Earth. It’s not a matter of ‘if’, but ‘when’. Last time this happened, the telegraph was high tech, so the damages was small. Ever since, the Earth has been hit a couple of times, with some few satellites ‘knocked dead’ and electrical grids shut down. Also, the increasing number of satellites and spacejunk causes a lot of extra work for the astronomers and that’s not for free.
