We welcomed back to Hotel Mars attorney Michael Listner to help us discuss recent statements by the Chinese President indicating that China should pursue the militarization of space. Coupled with this were the new warnings from Russia that our new sanctions against Russia may force Russia to cease working with the U.S. in space. Finally, we talked with Michael about the SpaceX lawsuit against the DOD so that they can break the ULA launch monopoly for Air Force high value satellites. Michael took us through discussion points on each of these issues and from a legal perspective.
