520 |a Tyson and 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. The explorer wants to understand it; the soldier wants to dominate it. Spanning early celestial navigation to satellite-enabled warfare, Tyson and Lang examine the intersection of science, technology, industry, and power. -- adapted from back cover
