Such were the concerns when the Apollo Program winded down and the US space shuttle fleet was on drawing boards and the Russians were developing their own super heavy lift rocket, massive space station complexes, scramjets, space shuttle, orbit to orbit shuttles, laser weapons and unmanned military, civilian and robotic planetary exploration vehicles and probes. A lunar base and space battle stations, using lasers and current atomic weapons, were predicted. Another was the remote controlled satellite destroyer that would locate, inspect and destroy enemy targets in orbit. One interesting vision gave an prediction that the huge space stations would be used as aircraft carriers (in space), and orbit to orbit shuttles used as fighter aircraft from a carrier.
