12:05 pm
john graver, who is a defense industry analyst with james. he says space is a priority for south korea in terms of defense. this launch system, once it's proven and operational will have the potential to provide south careers, military with satellites that provide capability in terms of our intelligence surveillance, navigation communications. and one of the biggest initial advantages potentially with this system with the launch system is that it will provide south, grew the ability to put satellites into space that provide capability to, to, to have persistent surveillance over north korea. and this will give south korea the ability to monitor potential north korean launches of ballistic and cruise missiles and also to shape to shape a response. but this really is the 1st stage. so in the next few years, south korea plans to develop and start operating
12:06 pm
a series of space launch vehicles from the narrow space center. and the launch vehicles will be putting small satellites into lower earth orbit arm further increasing south korea space defense capabilities are. that's the plan, and this is the 1st stage. traditionally in the last few years, north korea has, has responded tit for tat in many of the, in many of the developments in terms of missiles submarine launch missiles is, is one example. and so i would imagine that north korea will be looking to see how it could demonstrate its own capabilities in terms of space. it's probably too early to do that. but some capabilities advance capabilities would be something that north korea will be looking to demonstrate. as a result of this, u. s. f, as in joe biden, says he is concerned about chinese hypersonic miss and technology his cummins, come after the financial times reported beijing had tested a nuclear, came a weapon, went that technology in august,
12:07 pm
and messiah reportedly settled that long before descending ice target being denied . the report claiming it was testing a space vehicle particle haine has more from washington. the way does doesn't appear like it's trying to put a lot of focus on this. what happened was when president joe biden was leaving washington a reporter asked, are you concerned about this potential missile launch? and he said yes for her part white house spokesman jen, saki said they're reaching out to their counterparts in china through the diplomatic process. so basically this is all about a report in the financial times, it said that it over the summer, china was able to test launch what they call a nuclear capable, hypersonic glide. what? but so basically it's a missile that goes into the outer space, circles the globe at 5 times the speed of sound was able to land according to the financial time, pretty much near its target, missed its target, but just narrowly. now china says this was not a missile test, they said they were working on rocket technology. why is this such a big concern for the us? well, it's been a lot of, it's money on missile defense systems that can basically shoot down conventional
12:08 pm
types of missiles. they wouldn't work against the hypersonic missile, and it's a big emphasis for us military defense. one of the programs that they're considering pursuing would cost estimate a $176000000000.00 over 10 years. but it's hypersonic missiles become commonplace. obviously they're going to have to rethink their strategy. also important to point out, the other nations are working with this technology, including the united states. russia says it is as well as well as north korea. again, china says it is not working on that technology, but it has raise concerns in the us. libya is hosting an international conference as it seeks support ahead of elections, delegates from around the world. arriving for the meeting and tripoli, a gathering is seeking backing for efforts to bring peace and security ahead of december st. paul, the us, russia, turkey, and egypt are among those taking part as week to mallet train. i was at the conference, whereas in tripoli, so what does this conference mean for libya, malik?
