Event description

ISU Adelaide Conference returns ONLINE in February 2022 with the most important space issue of our time: Space Junk. In true multidisciplinary fashion that shapes all courses at the International Space University, our speakers, panelists, and session facilitators will look at this critical topic from many angles:Law & Treaties, Policy & Governance, Economics & Business, Technology & Engineering, Humanities & Arts with a special focus on Indigenous perspectives and overcrowding of the skies.

    Top Space agency representatives from the Indo-Pacific region, up-and-coming startup founders, venture capital investors, award-winning authors and artists, technologists and engineers, will all debate and discuss solutions for space debris removal, mitigation efforts, and what action is needed both now, and in the future, to solve this space junk tragedy of the commons.

    Join us for this gathering online. In addition to speakers we will have networking and facilitated break-out rooms spread over nine hours of content.
