Space defense systems and Harry Potter have more in common than you might think. Whether flying out of earth’s orbit or running through bricks to reach Platform 9 ¾, special circumstances require special countermeasures. While the United States is increasingly dependent on space systems, its ability to effectively deter attacks in space is in doubt.
