Space Café Summit Recap “Anarchy in Space?”

In this week’s first Space Café Summit “Anarchy in Space?”, Prof. Kai-Uwe Schrogl and Ntorina Antoni discussed a variety of topics on space security and space safety.

Never before has security in space been more challenged.

Never before has space been more elaborately used for military and security purposes on Earth.

And never before was it more necessary to understand and to receive orientation in the policy area of space security.

This indeed is the purpose of this second edition of the Handbook of Space Security, which is addressed to all persons and institutions dealing with space security on a governmental, academic, societal, international, and diplomatic level. From now, the global future will depend on the secure use of outer space for all policy areas with particular stress on climate change and environmental monitoring, telecommunications, navigation, and cyber infrastructures as well as resource man- agement. If space utilization as critical infrastructure is disrupted, our modern societies will break down. Space security is a key factor for survival. This is why space is also contested and space assets are vulnerable.

The discussion about the book also included video messages from the section editors Peter Hays, Dr. Jana Robinson, Maarten Adriaensen and Christina Giannopapa.

The guests also answered relevant questions from the audience.

This Space Café Summit “Anarchy in Space?” held on 10 Dezember 2020, was hosted by SpaceWatch.Global’s Editor-in-Chief Markus Payer and co-hosted by SpaceWatch.Global’s Publisher Torsten Kriening.
