ABOUT EPISODE 57


We all know space debris leads to more danger of collisions in space, but have you thought about what happens when debris falls through the atmosphere? With increasing numbers of new entrants and large constellations, there may be a need to protect against falling debris, especially for aircraft. Join Aerospace expert Dr. William Ailor as he talks to Dr. Michael Kezirian (University of Southern California) and Sven Kaltenhaeuser (German Aerospace Center, DLR) about protecting Earth’s airspace.
