Bombs Away

India says it is to build an aerospace defence command aimed at preventing possible attacks from space. In the wake of China's test, in which a ground-based medium-range ballistic missile was used to destroy a weather satellite, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh called for a "weapons free outer space".

How better to ensure a "weapons free" world than to keep up with the Joneses? "Russia will build four nuclear power reactors in India under a draft deal signed by their two leaders," according to a story from last Thursday. Don't hold your breath for a peaceful resolution to anything any time soon.
