Description

While still the domain of a few sovereign states and their defense ministries in particular, space is attracting private actors who are active in launching and deploying constellations made up of thousands of satellites each. This overcrowding of already busy orbits will force authorities to improve the regulation and traffic rules in space. If they don’t tend to that common, the risks of collision and interference will become unsustainable, threatening current activities vital for Earth and harming the prospect of progress for mankind. If creating the equivalent of an ICAO is not within reach yet, at least a multistakeholder process could be started to bring rules of the road to outer space.
