' How Power and Politics in space will change our world'

Spy satellites orbiting the Moon. Space metals worth billions. Humans on Mars within our lifetimes. This isn't science fiction. It's astropolitics. We're entering a new space race - and it could revolutionise life on  Earth.   Space: the new frontier, a wild and lawless place. It is  already central to communication, economics, military strategy and  international relations on Earth. Now, it is the latest arena  for human exploration, exploitation - and, possibly, conquest. We're  heading up and out, and we're taking our power struggles with us. China,  the USA and Russia are leading the way. From physical  territory and resources to satellites, weaponry and strategic choke  points, geopolitics is as important in the skies above us as it is down  below. If you've ever wondered if humans are going back to the Moon, who  will benefit from exploration or what space wars might look like, the  answers are here.   With all the insight and wit that have made Tim  Marshall the UK's most popular writer on geopolitics, this gripping book  shows how we got here and where we're going, covering great-power  rivalry; technology; commerce; combat in space; and what it means for  all of us down here on Earth.
