About Episode 106

More traffic on the road means more rules to protect drivers – the same is true for the space domain.  With more actors, larger constellations, and expanding human space flight – there needs to be greater attention to safety in space if we are to continue reaping benefits from space.  The Aerospace Corporation’s Space Safety Institute has issued a collection of research and writings that encompass: space situational awareness, launch and reentry, cyber security and spectrum allocation, and human space flight.  This episode features experts Samira Patel and Dr Josef Koller discussing the Space Safety Compendium, and special appearances from our deeply knowledgeable Aerospace experts. 

Available by video or podcast.

Read some highlights of the Compendium in this SpaceNews article by Jeff Foust "Report offers wide-ranging recommendations on space safety".
