Join CND for this online meeting to discuss the increasing militarisation of space.

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.

With guest speakers Dave Webb, Convenor of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space and co-author of the new report ‘Heavens Above: Examining the UK’s Militarisation of Space’; Mélusine Lebret, academic at LSE European Institute specialising in outer space security; and Bruce Gagnon, co-founder and coordinator of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space. Chaired by Kate Hudson, CND General Secretary.
