The year 2019 was an eventful one for space security, with numerous developments related directly to the United Nations agenda item on the prevention of an arms race in outer space (PAROS). Some states openly declared space to be a domain of war or an area for both offensive and defensive military operations, others announced new dedicated military space units, and another gave a live-fire demonstration of an anti-satellite (ASAT) weapon. All these developments lead to a central question for the international community: Is there already an arms race in outer space?
