Written by: developer
The Space Foundation will have an active role in the 16th ISU Annual International Symposium, coming up Feb. 21-23 in Strasbourg, France. The Space Foundation is a co-sponsor of the event and CEO Elliot Pulham will chair the Wednesday panel discussion on space debris.
According to International Space University (ISU), the Symposium “will address the risks faced by spacecraft and crew due to various natural and human generated threats. Looking beyond the current situation we ask what can be done to mitigate the threats in order to assure long-term sustainability of space activities particularly through increased co-operation between nations.”
