They do not believe in the inevitability of space weaponization and argue that this claim contains the danger of turning into a selffulfilling prophecy. They warn of the instabilities that an arms race in space might bring. DeBlois (1998), for example, argues that space weapons, because they enable quick strikes without much warning and are themselves highly vulnerable, increase the incentive to strike first. 19 Both groups in this camp, however, call for establishing international norms and rules – one could speak of an international regime – that prohibit the weaponization of space.
Hays (2002: 15), for example, points out that there have not been any significant calls for the protection of space with military means by commercial actors. Moltz (2011: 19) makes the more general point that the specific physical characteristics of space simply do not allow a degree of control of outer space as was the case with the sea or air. The fact that space is a very transparent medium and that objects in space are highly vulnerable to attacks from the ground makes it hard to control space in a similar way as sea or air.
13 One suggestion, for example, is the establishment of an international register for military research and development (Müller 2000), which could improve transparency in this field and help to identify technologies that are to be controlled. The concept of preventive arms control has already been applied to several fields of technology, for example, nuclear energy, chemical and biological weapons, robotics, and space technology (Petermann et al. 2003; Altmann 2006; Neuneck and Rothkirch 2006; Neuneck 2008b; Liebert et al.
