      Hi Morgan,
      Space technology can be used as a weapon or against weapons. A US President, Ronald Reagan, dreamed of creating a network of laser satellites to destroy and nuclear weapon launched on Earth. But in the end it was just too expensive to build.
      I believe it is cheaper and more effective to use space exploration to bring different nations together. This is the best way of stopping people even wanting to build weapons.
