GNOSIS

THE GLOBAL NETWORK ON SUSTAINABILITY IN SPACE

GNOSIS promotes, coordinates and develops collaboration across the academic, defence, industrial and political sectors to understand and solve problems relating to the sustainable use of Space.

To succeed in achieving

Sustainability in Space

requires an understanding of the space environment….

..

GNOSIS supports the scientific community to apply their knowledge to developing solutions for sustainability in space. Through a cross-disciplinary approach we bring together teams of scientists and expose them to the problems faced by industry and government, including the impact of debris and space weather on the growing spacecraft population, and applications of policy and law.

 

Learn more about the problem of space debris.

What GNOSIS does

GNOSIS organises thematic meetings and “jargon busting” workshops to facilitate discussions aimed at bringing scientists and industry together. It also provides seed funding for joint projects and in more advanced cases, provides part funding for graduate students.
Join together with a broad range of researchers and

The affect of solar activity on the debris population
An active Sun causes the atmosphere to expand, increasing the drag on all objects, and causing the ones in the lowest orbits to re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere, thereby decreasing the total debris population. But what can we expect if the Sun enters a "grand minimum"?

#SpaceDebris

A. Fielding of @PrivateerSpace on #SpaceDebris: „We shouldn‘t build a business on avoiding crashs. If someone on your flight would say ‚Give me 10$ & you won‘t crash‘ then you probably wouldn‘t board the plane. But this is the situation we‘re in right now.“ #AbuDhabiSpaceDebate
