In this fascinating foray into the centuries-old relationship between science and the military, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Avis Lang examine how the methods and tools of astrophysics have been enlisted in the service of war. Astrophysicists and military planners care about many of the same things: multi-spectral detection, ranging, tracking, imaging, high ground, nuclear fusion, and access to space. Spanning early celestial navigation to satellite-enabled warfare, this is a richly researched and provocative examination of the intersection of science, technology, industry, and power.
