Keep Space for Peace Week webinar

 


 How can we confront the rapidly increasing militarisation and possible weaponization of space?
 
When the US Space Force was established last year, President Trump said that it marked “a big moment” and that there was “going to be a lot of things happening in space. Because space is the world’s newest war-fighting domain.”
 
A new generation of space weapons – episode 2 of Reagan’s Star Wars – is In the cards. The U.S., Russia, China and India have extensive military space programmes and tested ASATs and the UK, France, NATO, Japan and South Korea have either established or are working towards their own military Space Forces.
 
This webinar produced by the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space (GN)


Keep Space for Peace Week gives us an opportunity to focus on the challenges presented by the rush to exploit space.
 
GN Convenor Professor Dave Webb introduces a panel of GN experts: Professor Karl Grossman (U.S.), Tamara Lorincz (Canada), Sung-Hee Choi (South Korea), Denis Doherty (Australia) and GN Coordinator Bruce Gagnon (U.S.) to discuss ways in which we can face these challenges.
