The space between us: assessing the potential for conflict in space

Rachel Riederer joins web editor Violet Lucca to discuss Riederer’s November cover story about the potential for military conflict in space. At present, there is no common understanding of what constitutes an act of war in space, nor are there clear guidelines for private companies entering orbit. In this episode of the podcast, Riederer and Lucca parse these inadequacies, the vulnerabilities of military and commercial satellites, recent attempts to update the rules that govern space, and the question of whether the Pentagon is inflating these threats.
