Space: A Chapter from The Power of Geography
** Extracted from the Sunday Times bestseller The Power of Geography by Tim Marshall. Also available to PRE-ORDER NOW in hardback, ebook and audio is The Future of Geography: How Power and Politics in Space Will Change Our World – out 27th April 2023**
As another golden age of exploration beckons over the limitless horizon, space is becoming a political battleground.
Who owns space? How do you decide? In this extract from the Sunday Times bestseller The Power of Geography: Ten Maps that Reveal the Future of Our World, former Sky News Diplomatic Editor Tim Marshall introduces the key faultlines that will shape this new arena of conflict.
From physical territory and resources to satellites, weaponry and strategic choke points, geopolitics is as important in the skies above us as it is on Earth. And unless we can cooperate on how nations, private companies and individuals are able to operate in space and venture out together as one unified planet, our space-faring nations may end up locked in a dangerous, cutting-edge arms race.
In his gripping new book The Future of Geography: How Power and Politics in Space Will Change Our World (OUT SOON – APRIL 2023), Marshall digs deep into the past, present and future of the new ‘astropolitics’ that are set to change the face of life on Earth.
