They do track satellites for the process of preventing collisions but there have been collisions.
Where it came from, but not where it was made or who sent the last transmission to it.
Banned by a treaty but not signed by all nuclear powers today. Do you really believe that a treaty would stop an enemy from putting a nuke in space?
Evidence? NO! that is the problem. You don't have evidence until it goes off.

Well damn it if we're gonna plan against nukes in space with no evidence there actually are then im making me a super rabies thread.. that's right... Zombies, deal with it :P

I see what you're saying and no it would not stop it but with no evidence it's actually going on I don't think it would be such a flawless plan some thing it would be.

And even if it did happen Im not worried about everything under the sun frying.
But that just me..

Im much more worried about a nuke going off aimed for destruction.

Well ground destruction or not, a nuke going off would be chaos. If a good chunk of the USA is in the dark, with no modern conveniences, we'd go nuts.
The one guy with a working red-dot would be pretty lonely.
