Cleaning Up Our Act in Space

9 AM - 9:50 AM | Captain America

Explore advances in active debris removal with Amazon Web Services and Aerospace Corporation. Debris in space—collected and compounded over several decades of space activity by many individual actors—doesn’t just impact the people who put it there.

Large or small, tracked or elusive, debris is everyone’s challenge. As commercial space innovation continues to drive new activity in space, novel methodologies and technologies for active debris removal are on the rise.

This panel explores the economic and tactical implications of navigating the current debris environment, how to minimize future debris, and novel approaches to reducing the current debris footprint in space.
