Roundtable

To gauge or not to gauge: what unified paradigm to assess sustainable use of outer space?

Protecting the planet and the people 

Space environmentalism needs a common paradigm. While definitions of “sustainable use of outer space” are multiplying around the world, the space community still lacks a clear consensus about concrete indicators to assess it – a role for instance played by carbon emissions measurement in the fight against climate change. This roundtable will present the first outcomes of the Net Zero Space working group dedicated to discussing the “orbital carrying capacity”, highlighting both difficulties and possible solutions to move forward in this regard.
