As countries seek to maintain control in outer-space, competition between nations will give rise to apocalyptic cosmic attacks, according to security officials.

Nightmare scenarios might leave vast swathes of the planet in the dark as intergalactic weapons knock out satellites and launch cyber attacks.

General John Hyten, head of US Strategic Command, told CNN: “As humans go out there, there has always been conflict. Conflict in the Wild West as we move in the West … conflict twice in Europe for its horrible world wars.

“So, every time humans actually physically move into that, there’s conflict, and in that case, we’ll have to be prepared for that.”

Nations in conflict might start to make plans to knock out an enemy’s space infrastructure such as satellites or space shuttles.
