Space: the biggest geopolitical story of the coming century. New from the multi-million-copy international bestselling author of Prisoners of Geography and The Power of Geography. Spy satellites orbiting the Moon. Space metals worth billions. Humans on Mars within our lifetimes.

This isn't science fiction. It's astropolitics. Were entering a new space race, and it could revolutionise life on Earth.

Space: the new frontier, a wild and lawless place. It is already central to communication, economics, military strategy and international relations on Earth. Now, it is the latest arena for human exploration, exploitation, and, possibly, conquest.

Were heading up and out, and were taking our power struggles with us. China, the USA and Russia are leading the way. From physical territory and resources to satellites, weaponry and strategic choke points, geopolitics is as important in the skies above us as it is down below.

If you've ever wondered if humans are going back to the Moon, who will benefit from exploration or what space wars might look like, the answers are here. With all the insight and wit that have made Tim Marshall the UKs most popular writer on geopolitics, this gripping book shows how we got here and where were going, covering great-power rivalry; technology; commerce; combat in space; and what it means for all of us down here on Earth. This is essential reading on power, politics and the future of humanity.
