China's Space Station in Argentina



The New York Times is reporting that China has built a space station in Argentina. It wouldn't be a space station if it was in Argentina. It would be a space station if it was in space. "the way the base was negotiated - in secret, at a time when Argentina desperately needed investment - and concerns that it could enhance China’s intelligence-gathering capabilities in the Western Hemisphere have set off a debate in Argentina about the risks and benefits of being pulled into China’s orbit." It's OK. China will piggy back off of all the stingray antennas they have set up all over North America for their warrantless surveillance. Nothing to worry about here. Much.
