What is SILO
The silo is a long, deep and cylindrical pit. Inside which are housed intercontinental nuclear ballistic missiles. The missile can be launched from here by opening the lid of these silos when needed. This is considered a historic step by China in its nuclear weapons program.
Will Marshall, co-founder and CEO of Planet Labs, tweeted about this. He featured two pics in his tweet. In which the missiles are clearly visible. “China has built more than 100 nuclear missile silos in the desert region,” Will Marshall wrote. Last year, he set up more than 100 Uyghur detention camps. Now the work has started from there. Will says that looking at the satellite images, it seems that the work of making silos is going very fast.
