Space: A new battlefield

Show of force, espionage, harassment - space tensions have been growing, out of sight, for the past 15 years. During the Cold War, the Soviet Union and the United States clashed on this terrain. China has since confirmed that the challenge to American domination is now also being played out in space.


Around the Earth, an army of civil and military satellites plays a key role in the economy and security of nations. Space is becoming a battleground between nations, a new territory in which terrestrial geopolitical rivalries are expressed.


Giving the floor to top Western space defense officials, this documentary offers a worrying assessment of the risks posed by geopolitical rivalries over our heads.
