Everybody is talking about space. But why does it matter? What are we doing there? And is war in space a remote possibility, or an inevitable risk?
In this trailer for a new podcast from RUSI, we discuss why space is important for national security.
War in Space Podcast Series
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.
