Space Cafe “Black Ops by Dr. Emma Gatti” with Dr. Namrata Goswami ep. 1 – Space Policy and Geopolitics: A Strategic Game of Interest, Values, Culture. 

The first episode of this special series of Space Cafe “Black Ops by Dr. Emma Gatti” with Dr. Namrata Goswami as resident guest was focused on a general introduction of the space political scene. The webinar framed the discourse and introduced the general rules of Space power, asking questions such as Where do we stand today? What does Space mean in this historical period, and how the powers are shifting? The interview in particular focused on:

  • How can we frame the Space environment discourse in his epoch, the XXI century, from a geopolitical point of view?
  • The concept of strategic  culture – how does the US looks at space vs. how China looks at space
  • Why is Space important and why should we discuss it from a political perspective?
  • Where do we stand today in terms of space power equilibrium?
  • A comment on the recent 20th Chinese National Party Congress and the recent Biden Administration National Security Strategy.
