Legal & Policy Issues in the New Orbital Economy

Wednesday, April 12, 2023 - 1:00pm - 5:30pm
Location: ZOOM

Sponsored by the Global Space Law Center

As private industry takes the lead in the use of Earth’s orbits, entirely new sectors of the orbital economy are emerging. The coming years will see the development of private space stations, on-orbit repair and refueling, orbital tourism, and an increasing number of megaconstellations. These dramatic changes in the orbital economy raise several challenges with respect to public policy and the regulatory landscape.

This symposium provides a neutral platform for stakeholders to identify and discuss these issues in the new orbital economy with an eye to finding solutions that meet the requirements of international law, address public policy concerns, and provide regulatory clarity to the private sector and its investors. The symposium will feature twenty thought leaders from industry, government, and academia who will participate in five 45-minute moderated panels designed to encourage a dynamic and creative conversation.
