- Poland and the United States will sign a preliminary deal to place part of a U.S. ballistic missile defense system in Poland -- a plan that has drawn sharp objections from Russia, the Polish president's office confirmed Thursday to CNN.

The U.S. now needs to start concentrating on lunar bases and missile defense systems, and continue the spread into Space.
