Theme For The Meeting Is The Sustainability Of Space
The International Space University (ISU), in collaboration with
NASA, will welcome more than 150 space experts from various space
agencies, industries and academia next week for its 16th Annual
The three day "Sustainability of Space Activities: International
Issues and Potential Solutions" symposium will address the risks
faced by spacecraft and crew due to various natural and human
generated threats in orbit. Looking beyond the current situation,
participants will ask what can be done to mitigate the threats to
assure long-term sustainability of space activities particularly
through increased co-operation between nations?
Each year, the International Space University (ISU) organizes a
three day symposium addressing a topical theme from an
interdisciplinary and international perspective. These symposia
attract an audience of around 200 members of the space sector from
agencies, industry and academia worldwide.
The scope of the Symposium will be in line with the main
objective of the UN COPUOS Working Group on the subject established
in early 2010, that is, “to examine and propose measures to
ensure the safe and sustainable use of outer space for peaceful
purposes, for the benefit of all countries”.
ISU is particularly proud to welcome high level speakers who
will be sharing their perspectives on this specific topic,
including Mr. Gérard Brachet - Former Chair UN COPUOS, Vice
President of IAF as the keynote speaker.
