Karl Grossman :: “Turning the Heavens Into a War Zone.” This just-out TV program, part of the "Enviro Close-Up with Karl Grossman" series, spotlights how if Trump gets his way on formation of a U.S. Space Force, the heavens would become a war zone.
Inevitably, there would be military conflict in space. The program details how the Space Force scheme flies in the face of the Outer Space Treaty of 1967 that designates space as the global commons to be used for peaceful purposes. It tells of how space weaponry would be nuclear-powered—as Reagan's “Star Wars” scheme was to be, with nuclear reactors and plutonium systems on orbiting battle platforms providing the power for hypervelocity guns, particle beams and laser weapons. Amid the many horrible things being done by the Trump administration, turning the heavens into a war zone would be the most terribly destructive. The coordinator of the Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space, Bruce Gagnon, is featured in the program and discusses what people can do to stop this.
