A new generation of satellites, a new type of satellite and a weapon have been developed by Chinese researchers. Recently, they claimed to have created a satellite weapon that could destroy other satellites in space. They called it a "Relativistic Klystron Amplifier (RKA)" microwave machine. 

How can it destroy other satellites? 

The answer is very simple, this new type of satellite can burn and burn sensitive electronics in satellites. The component that destroys other satellites is mounted on a satellite, which is launched into orbit. The component is always glued to the satellite. Also, this new weapon, which can be mounted on almost any satellite, can produce a five megawatt wave explosion in the Ka band. 

It is also good to know that this weapon cannot hit a target in space, from the ground. The satellite must be in space to shoot at targets in space. 

But it is shocking that one of the scientists claimed that this weapon was "overwhelming just to think about," according to the Taiwan Times. 

However, China denies that the RKA is a directed energy weapon (DEW) and does not use the concentrated electromagnetic energy system to destroy other satellites. 

But not all experts are of the opinion. 

It is not the first idea of ​​a satellite to destroy other satellites, but it will probably be the first project of its kind sent into space just for this purpose. But, as I said above, the component that destroys other satellites can be mounted on almost any satellite, as long as the satellite is adapted.
