Problem

Should the U.S. deploy weapons in space? Should any nation? Should the heavens become another shooting gallery, along with land, sea and air? Despite the longstanding rejection of the notion of weaponizing outer space, the U.S. Air Force is moving ahead with plans for deploying weapons in outer space, and for U.S. dominance of what was once considered a shared sanctuary for exploration, communication and other peaceful pursuits.

The Gift

Your gift will help maintain space as a shared, weapon-free sanctuary for exploration and communication by allowing us to advance some of the most practical approaches for keeping outer space weapon-free. “A Citizens Guide to Space Security” explains in clear and compelling language how U.S. plans to dominate space and potentially introduce weapons in orbit would actually undermine national and international security. Getting this booklet directly into the hands of members of Congress and their staff is essential to informing our elected officials about this critical topic.
