In this week’s Space Cafè WebTalk, Dr. Peter Martinez, Executive Director of the Secure World Foundation, USA talked about potential scenarios for the future of humanity in space.

Growth and Sustainability in Space – ensuring the long-term usability of Earth’s orbits and beyond: There are more human activities taking place in space today than ever before, and there are no signs of this growth slowing down. Mega-constellations, on-orbit services and lunar mining are all going from science fiction to reality. However, to ensure that humans will continue to be able to benefit from space, steps must be taken to put best-practices and norms of behaviour in place for space operations.

Dr. Peter Martinez also answered relevant questions from the audience.

This Space Cafè WebTalk, held on 26 January 2021, was hosted by Torsten Kriening, publisher of SpaceWatch.Global. 

SpaceWatch.Global is a Switzerland-based digital magazine and portal for those interested in space and the far reaching impact of the space sector.
