WORLD: we got this


The role of space in modern-day warfare

Season 3, Ep. 11

The invasion of Ukraine has shown how new technologies are now used alongside more traditional means of waging war.

This episode, the second on the Changing Face of War, looks at how space has become an integral part of military and security operations today, how countries around the world and private individuals are expanding their activities into space, and how closely these are linked to what is happening on Earth.

It also explores whether we need to put in safeguards now, how we can learn lessons from the past and why we should encourage international collaboration to ensure space doesn’t become dangerous overcrowded by satellites and space debris.

The episode feature Dr Sophy Antrobus, Dr Mark Hilborne and Julia Balm, who are all based in the School of Security Studies in our Faculty of Social Science & Public Policy.
