Still don’t believe that China is on its way to its full superpower status? They’re planning on launching 100 satellites in the next 15 years. As big as China is, you still don’t need 100 eyes in the sky just to keep track of “every corner of the country.” Ok, so even if they do intend for the satellites to just watch China, that’s somewhat spooky. Half-meter live video of the entire country, anybody?
But it all matters very little, since by that time we will all be blind.
