Author and geopolitical analyst Brandon Weichert discusses his new book on the battle for space. He explains why the Space Force was created now, why space is the key strategic domain going forward, and what a space battle might look like. He examines how America is in dire need of reviving its space effort and how China’s economic rise could mean obtaining technological and ultimately military superiority. Finally, he looks at the socio-cultural divide and how that has severely hampered American superpower status and gives his prognosis of great power conflict and war in this decade.
