The space environment and existing political initiatives to govern space and constrain its militarization are changing. This paper surveys those changes and examines how recent developments in the space environment may impact “strategic stability”. It assesses definitions and criticisms of strategic stability in the context of space and discusses the implications of reliance on strategic stability in space as a guiding principle in the contemporary and near future world.
