Could the space wars of science fiction become reality?

Space is increasingly becoming weaponized. While that may seem very far away, the dangers felt on earth would be all too real.

Rick Fisher, senior fellow at the International Assessment and Strategy Center, said "Americans would feel an immediate impact. Our ability to pump gas into our cars, or withdraw money from our banks, would be very much threatened."

In this special report, we dive into how this could all play out, the steps being taken, and how space maybe isn't so far away.

And joining us to help shed light on the topic are #BrandonWeichert, author of "Winning Space: How America Remains a Superpower"; Dr. Malcolm Davis, senior analyst in defense strategy and capability at ASPI in Canberra, Australia; and Rick Fisher, senior fellow at the International Assessment and Strategy Center.
