The EPFL Space Center (eSpace) and Skoltech Space Center are co-organizing this On-orbit Servicing, Debris & Proximity Operations Workshop. It will gather international perspectives from industry, government, and academia interested in sustainable space logistics, to share their ideas and future visions of the field. One impact of new logistics in space is orbits have become more crowded. On-orbit servicing, space debris, life extensions and disposal are all deeply connected to this trend.
The format will be 7-25-minute presentations followed by Q&A. Afterwards an interactive session will synthesize viewpoints, identifying key societal issues and research questions, and creating common mental models. What research is needed on these issues? What is the structure and interconnection of the problems?
Outcomes will include:
As well as many top researchers from Skoltech and EPFL!
