The hidden thread running our modern life—from strings of cables thousands of feet beneath the surface of the seas, to a constellation of satellites high above in the sky.

In this special report, we zoom in on information super-highways—undersea cables and satellites—how our daily lives rely on them, and how adversarial powers like Russia and China could be poised to disrupt them.

Joining us to help shed light on the topic are Greg Copley, president of the International Strategic Studies Association, and Rick Fisher, senior fellow at the International Assessment and Strategy Center.
