ON THE AGENDA - June 26
There has been a lot of discussion of the need to develop norms of behavior for space to address space sustainability challenges, but little agreement on what norms are or how they would help. In light of the Summit discussions, how would norms of behavior help with space sustainability? What are specific proposals for norms on commercial, civil, and national security space should be priorities for the space community? | Moderator: Victoria Samson, SWF
