Tuesday 22 October 2019, 11:45 – 12:30
Location: The Walter E. Washington Convention Center – Grand Ballroom A
There are a lot of exciting changes going on in the space industry that could provide amazing new benefits from space, but are also creating policy challenges for the current system of space governance at both the national and international level. This panel will take a “grand tour” of the big public policy issues the space community is grappling with, including management of radiofrequency spectrum, orbital debris mitigation, space traffic management, space resource utilization, and the renewed geopolitical space competition. Panelists will discuss the core challenges on each of these topics along with the prospects for coming to resolution in the next few years.
