Alexandra Stickings on security in space for BBC World at One.

As featured on BBC



The recent Russian incident is a very good example of all the activity we are seeing in space. Space is such an important environment for defence, for national security and the competitiion we see. But it's also an example of the uncertainty that comes with any activities we see in space and why it's so difficult to say with absolute certainty that this was a weapon's test or that we're seeing warfare reaching space. It's a very very complicated subject and it's very dfficult to really understand what's going on.
