In Ukraine and around the world, satellites have become increasingly essential for military operations. Over 7,000 active satellites are currently in orbit, but how vulnerable are they to targeting and attack? This week host Elisa is joined by Dr. Brian Weeden of the Secure World Foundation to discuss the role satellites have played in Ukraine, in past conflicts, and how they've evolved to become a prime military vulnerability. How has Russia targeted satellites in order to gain ground in Ukraine? And how is the US strengthening satellite resilience for the future?
