About Episode 136

Space debris is a growing problem, so what are space actors doing about it?  Active Debris Removal is a technology currently being demonstrated and strengthened.  The Zero Debris Charter from the European Space Agency is a voluntary, community-led initiative that aims to reduce the conditions that lead to more debris. In this episode, space debris expert and The Aerospace Corporation Technical Fellow Marlon Sorge discusses these efforts with Holger Krag, Head of the Office of Space Safety at ESA.  

This episode is part of the Center for Space Policy and Strategy's series on “Space Safety Through a Global Lens”. The series covers a range of foundational topics on issues related to space safety from an international perspective, including:  

  • How Stuff Works: Space Weather 
  • What Is Space Safety?
