 ABOUT EPISODE 55


Debris is an increasing problem that threatens our ability to safely operate in space. How are space debris issues being addressed? Technologies for active debris removal (ADR) exist, but the market has yet to be established. What’s holding up the development of what could be a game changer for space? Join Aerospace experts as they discuss this and more. Dr. Rebecca Reesman talks to Christopher May and Tyler Way about their current research into both the technology and policy/legal components.

Read both papers featured in this episode: Chris May's “Triggers and Effects of an Active Debris Removal Market” and Tyler Way's "Active Debris Removal: Policy and Legal Feasibility"
