Earlier this week, there was an accident at a space facility in Iran.
NPR reports that President Donald Trump then sent out this tweet:
Many have said that the picture in the tweet has given away some information about our satellites due to the quality of the image.
An adjunct senior fellow at the Federation of American Scientists, Ankit Panda says,
"The resolution is amazingly high. I would think it's probably below well below 20 centimeters, which is much higher than anything I've ever seen."
He went on to say that the tweet makes known, "some pretty amazing capabilities that the public simply wasn't privy to before this".
Critics have said that this tweet discloses to our enemies what the United States is capable of in this area.
The deputy director of the Open Nuclear Network at the One Earth Foundation, Melissa Hanham says,
"You really risk giving away the way you know things. That allows people to adapt and hide how they carry out illicit activity".
But Donald Trump has responded to critics by saying:
"We had a photo and I released it, which I have the absolute right to do".
So what should we make of this? Listen below to find out!
