This episode marks a departure from our normal content, which typically includes topics such as the impact of SDN on ground systems, space exploration, rocket launches and so much more. Instead we will discuss space law and its impact on such issues as orbital debris, geospatial analytics and space tourism among others. To guide us through this discussion our guest today is Randy Segal, a partner in Hogan Lovells. We talk about the nuances of the Outer Space Act, a 50-year-old agreement recently updated with the Artemis Accords and Randy explains the impact of Space Law on public-private space partnerships as well as its impact on the weaponization of space. Randy concludes with a consensus on procedures and platforms for everything space; situational awareness, traffic management, debris mitigation, space sustainability.
