CNN TO PREMIERE WAR IN SPACE: THE NEXT BATTLEFIELD AT 9 P.M. EST ON TUESDAY, NOV. 29
ONE-HOUR CNN SPECIAL REPORT HOSTED BY CHIEF NATIONAL SECURITY CORRESPONDENT JIM SCIUTTO
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Nov. 28, 2016 – CNN will air War in Space: The Next Battlefield – an in-depth CNN Special Report on the arms race in outer space – at 9 p.m. EST on Tuesday, Nov. 29.
The one-hour documentary explores the belief by many in the military and civilian experts that war in space is inevitable. The American way of life depends on satellites in space, such as daily commutes, to withdrawing money from a bank, to the soldiers and intelligence agencies defending the U.S. abroad and at home. U.S. adversaries, like China and Russia, are pushing an arms race in space, taking aim at America with a dizzying array of weapons seemingly borrowed from science fiction, from lasers to kamikaze and kidnapper satellites.
