Episode 12: Beyond the Horizon

In a rapidly growing sector such as space, tracking and predicting trends is a necessary, if challenging, task.

We speak with Taskeen Ali, Head of Horizon Scanning at the Space Directorate within the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. She talks to us about emerging trends, how horizon scanning works and how to avoid blind spots in an industry that is growing more and more connected as it evolves.

War in Space Podcasts

Space is becoming increasingly congested, contested and competed over. It has never been so easy – or so cheap – to launch a satellite into orbit. With space activity proliferating, its impact on national security has grown too: space assets are becoming vulnerable and space debris is becoming increasingly dangerous. War in Space is a series of interviews with experts in space and defence that will analyse the intersection of space and national security, unravelling the technical jargon that so often accompanies these discussions and explaining why space matters for our everyday lives and security.
