While considerable attention has, over the past few years, been focussed on the military space activities of the superpowers, little has so far been published on the policies, capabilities and intentions of European nations in this field

A formal European Space Policy was established on 22 May 2007 when a joint and concomitant meeting at the ministerial level of the Council of the European Union and the Council of the European Space Agency adopted a Resolution on the European Space Policy. The policy had been jointly drafted by the European Commission and the Director General of the European Space Agency. This was the first common political framework for space activities established by the European Union (EU).

Over the past seven years, photographer Alasdair McLellan has been documenting the scene on Southbank, focusing specifically on the Palace Skateboards team Palace Wayward Boys Choir. Collated in a new ICA exhibition, "The Palace", the photographs are a series of intimate portraits that show the camaraderie, focus and dedication of the team. Collating the photos into a recently published photo book (also entitled The Palace), McLellan was particularly attracted to the very British aspects of the Palace team, as he explains in the book's introduction

Yet the military significance of space is now greater than ever before. Today space is utilized by all the major military powers for a wide range of purposes, including surveillance, reconnaissance, navigation and communications to name but four. The 1990's have thus developed into the decade which, from an operational military perspective, has seen space become Europe's final frontier.

This article uses space power theory to analyse the military space policy of the United States during the Cold War .

This article uses space power theory to analyse the military space policy of the United States during the Cold War period up to the demise of the Soviet Union. It examines the consensus that emerged during this period which sought to prevent the weaponization of space. Following the example of the USA, the European Union and consortia of European nations are starting to flatten the barriers between military, commercial and scientific missions and programmes, under pressure from security issues and to protect their economic investments in space.

Magazine article The World Today

Magazine article The World Today. Space is a medium like the land, sea and air within which military activities will be conducted to achieve US national security objectives. Given that this is Washington's policy, can other states afford to ignore not only the importance of space, but also the likelihood of its emergence as a new theatre of conflict? All states are increasingly dependent on space in one way or another. The information society and the application of its techniques in fighting wars - the Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA) - have both increased reliance on technology.

This book sets out to provide an introduction to the military use of space, with particular emphasis on the European context. While considerable attention has, over the past few years, been focussed on the military space activities of the superpowers, little has so far been published on the policies, capabilities and intentions of European nations in this field. In the comparatively few years since the first man-made satellite was launched into earth orbit, the world has witnessed a spectacular growth not only in the number of satellites launched, but in the wide range of different purposes which they serve. Nowhere is this more true than in the realm of military activity. Today the military forces of many nations, wherever they may be around the globe, rely to an ever increasing extent on the use of space-based assets for a wide range of support facilities, from communication and surveillance to apparently more mundane, but no less important tasks, such as weather forecasting. While it is true to say that the Soviet Union and the United States of America are without any doubt the current leaders in such military uses of space, other nations are also increasingly reliant on such technology. Over the past few decades Europe has grown to take her current place as the world's third power in terms of civilian space activities. Yet it has also, though to a much lesser extent, developed an autonomous military space capability. This book sets out to examine the ways in which this situation has come about, and questions whether or not this is likely to, or indeed should, change as we move rapidly towards the 21st century.
