Wednesday, July 1, 2020

SWF Executive Director Peter Martinez has published an article on space sustainability in the new 2020 edition of the Springer Handbook on Space Security. The article discusses the origin of the concept of space sustainability, and the emergence of a common understanding that this is an issue that concerns all countries that benefit from space activities, not just the leading spacefaring nations conducting such activities. The article also discusses the relationship of space sustainability with space security and the progress made in the discussions of these topics in various multilateral fora over the past decade.
