Kaitlyn Johnson, Deputy Director of the Aerospace Security Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) knows a thing or two about space. What’s more, is she and her team at CSIS seamlessly combined counterspace defense systems with Harry Potter to make an easily accessible, but wholly comprehensive, report on counterspace weapons (the “dark arts”). Whether defending satellites from attack or saving the wizarding world from evil, special circumstances require special countermeasures. What is the current state of space and counterspace defenses today? How can the United States maintain a distinct strategic advantage over the “dark arts” in space?
