The fourth Luna Philosophie will aim to explore the issues and concerns that have arisen recently regarding Space traffic. we will also explore how they are reflective of the concerns that we face here on Earht and the correlation between the two.

As suggested by attendees from the first Luna Philosophie, we will first begin with a short (~20 minute) presentation to set the tone for the subsequent discussion.
Space Traffic Management

Civil, military and commercial satellites from all nations alike face an increasing problem from the overcrowding of certain orbits by satellites and debris. Measures will need to be devised on how to manage space traffic if we are to minimize the risk of physical collisions and radio interference and thus maximize the ability of actors to use space freely. This area is at a complex interplay of technical and engineering problems, political tensions, space law, and important security implications for many nations. It affects all space activity, civil, military and commercial and from all nations. This Team Project will develop a system of space traffic management, including its technical and legal aspects, that will continue to allow freedom of use of space without interference in the age where there are more spacecraft and more space actors..

About Luna Philosophie and NASA CoLab:
Riffing off of the centuries old conversational "salon" tradition, Luna Philosophie is a time for discussing humanity's evolution into space! is An initiative of NASA CoLab, a new program aiming to increase public participation in the nation's space program, Luna Philosophie occurs on (or close to) every Full Moon, in San Francisco, as part of CoLab's efforts to bring NASA and space to the dynamic creative communities of the San Francisco Bay Area. Each Luna Philosophie meeting has have a different theme, and involves a presentation and open discussion for philosophizing. Anyone who is interested in an open, creative dialogue on human, space related topics is encouraged to attend!
