The wars of the future may well be fought in outer space. Laser weapons being developed by the United States and the USSR could break the nuclear deadlock – and allow one of the major powers to risk a nuclear war. This “World in Action” film looks at the implications of the arms race in space, and at the way a British project may have influenced it.
