The race for dominance in space is shaping the future of humanity, from the discovery of space metals worth more than most countries’ GDP, to the possibility of humans on Mars within the next decade.

Tim explores the new geopolitical realities of space and its impact on the global political landscape in the next fifty years. Topics include the new space race, great-power rivalry, technology, economics, and war, and how they are set to shape human history.

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
