Astropolitics, also known as astropolitik, has its foundations in geopolitics and is a theory that is used for space in its broadest sense.
Astropolitics is often studied as an aspect of the security studies and international relations subfields of political science. This includes the role of space exploration in diplomacy as well as the military uses of satellites, for example, for surveillance or cyber warfare.
