The 61st Session of the Scientific and Technical Subcommittee (STSC) of the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UN COPUOS) met In Vienna, Austria, from January 29 to February, 2024. The annual meeting brought together more than one hundred country delegations and two dozen observers to discuss and contribute their perspectives on issues related to the civil and peaceful uses of outer space, including orbital debris, long-term sustainability, and use of space for global health and sustainable socioeconomic development.

SWF Chief Program Officer Dr. Brian Weeden made a statement under the Exchange of Views agenda item that provided an update on SWF activities since the last meeting of STSC.
