Space warfare

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Space warfare is combat that occurs in outer space. As of 2024, no large-scale battle or war is known to have taken place in space, though a number of single-event tests had been performed. In reality so far, It has only happened once on 31 October 2023 during the Red Sea Crisis. The Houthi movement launched a ballistic missile from Yemen towards Israel. Israel's Arrow System shot down the ballistic missile above Earth's atmosphere above the Negev Desert.[1][2][3]
