Roscosmos unveils new Space Station as a "global and national defense platform"

Star City, Russia– Roscosmos has unveiled a new space station, that will serve as "global and national defense platform."  The new system goes by the name "Direct Earth Terrestrial Homeland Safety Transport And Repercussion" (or DETHSTAR) station.

The new station will use a unique new design, a large sphere that has experimental artificial gravity.  The spherical station has a dish on it that hosts a defense laser, that can be used to destroy incoming asteroids, Roscosmos says.

Roscosmos explained in a recent press conference that the station is for global safety, and that they are constructing it for the benefit of all mankind.  Personally, I think the name is a mouthful and should be said as an acronym.
