Crowded space: why the increasing militarisation of space could risk nuclear war
October 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The increasing militarisation of space is contributing to a wider problem: it’s becoming dangerously crowded. Currently there are 27,000 human-made objects floating in space, and there are plans for this number to increase sharply. Billions of pounds are being spent by multiple countries – including the UK – on militarising space. This includes satellites, ground-based stations and new technologies such as armed drones, controlled through satellites. Not surprisingly, a crowded space has major implications for security, including increasing the risk of nuclear war. Find out more in this webinar.
Chaired by Kate Hudson (General Secretary, CND) with speakers: Mélusine Lebert, Dave Webb and Bruce Gagnon + Q&A
