The prospect of Earth being ruled from space is no longer science fiction. The dream of the original Dr. Strangelove, Werner von Braun (from Nazi rocket-scientist to NASA director) has survived every US administration since World War II and is coming to life. Today the technology exists to weaponize space, a massive American industry thrives, and nations are maneuvering for advantage.
Pax Americana and the Weaponization of Space tackles this pivotal moment. Are war machines already orbiting Earth? Can treaties keep space weapons-free? Must the world capitulate to one super-cop on the global beat? With startling archival footage and unprecedented access to US Air Force Space Command, this elegant, forceful documentary reveals the state of play through generals, space-policy analysts, politicians, diplomats, peace activists, and hawks.
"Concise. visually stimulating and frequently disturbing for its revelations about the US miltary's ongoing efforts to ensure its domination over the heavens." - Jason Anderson, TORONTO STAR
