About Episode 55

Debris is an increasing problem that threatens our ability to safely operate in space. How are space debris issues being addressed?

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.
