Did the United States test an anti-satellite weapon when it “shot down” an out-of-control spy satellite earlier this month? Or was it a precautionary measure to protect people on the ground who might have been hit with a fuel tank filled with a poisonous gas? If the 1967 space treaty—which designated space as a peaceful place—has become outdated, how can the U.S. ensure the safety of its assets without leading the charge toward a new cold war? Please join us for a policy forum featuring Dr. Peter Hays, Associate Director, Eisenhower Center for Space and Defense Studies; Theresa Hitchens, Director of the Center for Defense Information; Jeff Kueter, President of the George C. Marshall Institute; and Mike Moore, author of Twilight War: The Folly of U.S. Space Dominance. The forum will be moderated by Ivan Eland, Senior Fellow at the Independent Institute.

Twilight War: The Folly of U.S. Space Dominance

“Sixty years ago I wrote ‘We will take no frontiers into space.’ Twilight War presents riveting and disturbing evidence that some nations are attempting just that—making the heavens unsafe for us all.”
SIR ARTHUR C. CLARKE, author of 2001: A Space Odyssey

Twilight War is a tour de force.”
THERESA HITCHENS, Director, Center for Defense Information, author of Future Security in Space: Charting a Cooperative Course

“A well-balanced, comprehensive and clearly written analysis that examines the critical issue of space policy in the context of international security and fundamental American values.”
LT. GENERAL ROBERT G. GARD, JR., (USA, Ret.), Senior Military Fellow, Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation
