About Episode 116

How does the US Department of State shape national security space through diplomacy?  Why did the U.S. make a commitment to not conduct destructive, direct-ascent missile tests and how is that commitment in U.S. national interests? Do norms of responsible behavior for space matter if Russia and China can ignore them? How do developments in commercial space compliment or complicate diplomatic efforts? What comes next on the diplomatic front for national security space?  Join Aerospace Corporation’s Dr Mick Gleason (Sr Policy Analyst, CSPS) and Mallory Stewart, the Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Arms Control, Verification, and Compliance at the US Department of State to find out more.
