Implications of a Growing Spaceflight Industry: Climate Change
Given the fact that little scientific attention has been paid to the impacts of rocket launches and space debris reentries on global climate and stratospheric ozone, what information will policymakers need in the future to make effective regulatory decisions regarding industrial emissions and fossil fuel use?
Toward Environmental Accountability: Transforming Satellite Data Into Action
The environmental health of the planet continues to deteriorate as scientists study the problem. What does the next successful environmental initiative look like, and where will it come from?
Light Pollution From Satellites
The increase in proliferated low Earth orbit (pLEO) constellations set to launch over the next decade has fueled concern from the astronomy community, academia, and the general public over the light pollution visible in the night sky created by sunlight reflecting off these satellites. The overall impact of pLEO light pollution on astronomical observational equipment and research is still largely under-studied and unregulated.
