THE GLOBAL NETWORK ON SUSTAINABILITY IN SPACE
We bring together scientists and industry to understand and solve problems related to the ever growing problem of space debris and the challenges of safeguarding spacecraft set to launch into this environment.
To succeed in achieving
Sustainability in Space
Requires an understanding the nature of space debris and the application of law to the space environment. Through a cross disciplinary approach we aim to bring together teams of scientists and expose them to the problems faced by industry and help them apply their knowledge in tackling problems associated with space debris.
