This book looks at the history of military uses of space and the current plans for "weaponizing the heavens', including kinetic, laser, nuclear bombardment, and anti-satellite weapons. Contrary to the claims of former secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld that the U.S. faces a " space Pear Harbour," Caldicott and Eisendrath's research reveals that the U.S. is today the principal obstruction to the passage of an international treaty banning weapons from outer space.

Helen Caldicott is the co-founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility, president of the Nuclear Policy Research Institute, and a Nobel Peace Prize nominee. She is also the author of many books, including Nuclear Power Is Not The Answer and The New Nuclear Danger.

Craig Eisendrath is th chair of the Project for Nuclear Awareness, co-founder of the National Constitutiion Center, and the author, most recently of, Bush League Diplomacy
