Posted by in categories: military, satellites

The US military is looking to have spy satellites patrol the Moon’s orbit, according to a recently shared video first spotted by Ars Technica.

The two-minute video, titled “Cislunar Highway Patrol System (CHPS)” and uploaded by the US Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) this week, details the project.

“Until now, the United States space mission extended 22,000 miles above Earth,” a narrator explains in the brief video. “That was then, this is now.”
