The purpose of this thesis is to codify and evaluate the analogical reasoning present in the literature concerning space warfare. As the United States Space Force establishes a corps of Orbital Warfare professionals, those officers and enlisted personnel must understand which analogies are often evoked and how they assist or distort an accurate understanding of space forces and the space domain. This paper will provide two frameworks to assist space professionals in analyzing analogies and using those analogies productively. An analysis of two analogiesone between early airpower and modern space power and one between the high seas and the space domainis then provided. Finally, an analysis of how those two analogies distort or promote comprehension of orbital warfare and space warfighting in general is provided along with best practices for the use of analogies.
