Recording: Running out of Space: A New Look at Space Junk, Mar 10, 2023

Just as humankind is responsible for a sustainable future on Earth, we are also responsible for a sustainable future in space. Millions of pieces of space junk orbit our planet, threatening everything from our phone GPS to our ability to monitor and respond to natural disasters. As Earth’s orbit becomes increasingly cluttered, this debris also endangers our future off-planet as we continue to explore the final frontier. Join a panel of experts to discuss what is being done, and what needs to be done, to promote orbital sustainability and take out the space trash.
