Slash the Trash: Incentivizing Deorbit

with Rebecca Reesman &  Mick Gleason plus special guest Dan Oltrogge


How can the sustainability of the space domain be protected in a looming new era of increasingly congested space? How can the international space community reduce these risks and make them more manageable? One vital method is for satellite owners and operators to voluntarily comply with the already internationally agreed-upon guideline to deorbit satellites no longer than 25 years after the end of their mission. In this episode, we discuss different management approaches and economic incentives to improve compliance. Full details of the discussed concepts can be found in our recently released paper Slash the Trash: Incentivizing Deorbit.
