Right now, international collaborators are using satellite imagery to fight the spread of Ebola in Africa; soon, a military space operations center in California will become a gathering place for the United States and its allies to prepare together for conflict that extends into space. Space is critical to fostering security across the globe — how can space-faring nations balance their own security priorities with those of their neighbors in orbit? Join The George Washington University’s Space Policy Institute and The Aerospace Corporation’s Center for Space Policy and Strategy for panel discussions on using outer space to create a more secure future on Earth.
Topics will include balancing national security and economic security in a contested and congested space domain and strengthening partnerships: overcoming differences in priorities, opinions, and systems.
