Astronomy Cast Ep. 709: Space Weapons

by Fraser Cain & Dr. Pamela Gay

Streamed live on Feb 19, 2024.

[My apologies for Fraser’s audio dropouts. We’re not sure how it happened as it wasn’t happening at his studio. Audio is a black art, IMHO. Rich)

Last week we learned that Russia might be planning nuclear weapons to take out satellites in space. What is the current and future possibility of weapons in space and what are the treaties designed to prevent them?
