Reducing the Risks of Space NOW
New York Space Business Roundtable: Services – Catching Asteroids, Cleaning Debris & Data Mining
The Better Satellite World campaign shows the world why our industry, though often invisible, is indispensable to modern life, through powerful stories and videos that depict space and satellite technologies contributing to the economy, society and sustainability of planet Earth. You can see footage of the dangers and intricacies of space debris provided by NASA and ESA below. Some of our Better Satellite World videos also focus on the challenges and risks of space travel, and SSPI will be releasing two new videos on the topic during this campaign!
