Arming the Heavens: the Push for Weapons in Space


27 min.

File No



DVD; Includes manual.


In a rush to seize "the new high ground", the United States is moving forward on plans to place weapons in space. This represents a significant break from the long-standing international policy of restrain toward arming the heavens. This film explores the range of visions from those who seek to preserve space as a "weapons free zone" to those who would make the U.S. military commander-in-chief of the cosmos.
