Join SpaceWatch.Global for an interesting and informative Space Café WebTalk featuring Prof. Stephan Hobe, Director at Institute of Air Law, Space Law and Cyber Law, University Cologne, Cologne, Germany. This event will take place on 8 December 2020 at 4:00 pm CET.

Prof. Hobe will discuss some questions of the future design of the legal order for human activities in outer space.

This includes economic space activities like the use of outer space through satellites, coordination via Space Traffic Management, and the use of resources from celestial bodies. Also future forms of the military use of outer space are discussed.

There will be a crucial focus on the question how the legal order for the commercial uses of outer space pays tribute to the main requirement of the Outer Space Treaty to allow a general participation of all countries in the use of outer space and its benefits.

In sum a deep view into the future of commercial and military uses of outer space and their legal orders shall be made.

This Space Café WebTalk will be hosted by Torsten Kriening, publisher of SpaceWatch.Global. The audience will have an opportunity to ask questions in dialogue with Prof. Hobe.

#SpaceWatchGL Opinion: Say YES to diversity and gender equality in the space sector: a look at the Diversity and Gender Equality Project Group of the SGAC

Diversity is difficult to measure and quantify, given all the aspects and shapes it takes, yet it is easy to witness and observe the lack of it in many fields including the space sector. If the space sector and all its disciplines should be used to help improve life on earth and observe it (amongst other purposes), shouldn't it be represented by all terrestrial individuals equally? In an ideal world, yes! But history and social biases have prevented our progress towards this perfect world, and we find ourselves today with a space sector still dominated by cis white-male individuals.
