Brian Weeden Gives Public Talk on the Space Force and Competition in Space

Wednesday, October 9, 2019

SWF Director of Program Planning gave a public talk why the United States was considering creating a Space Force and broader space security issues as part of an event organized by the World Affairs Council of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. The event was held in the Cincinnati Observatory, the oldest publicly-funded telescope in the United States. Dr. Weeden's presentation gave an overview of the history of space security challenges and policies, current trends in the space domain that are driving changes, and explained how the proposals for a U.S. Space Force and U.S. Space Command are attempts to better organize existing U.S. military space activities. 

As part of the event, Dr. Weeden gave a radio interview with Cincinnati Edition on Cincinnati public radio to preview some of the themes from this talk.
