Recorded in Colorado Springs, CO on April 19, 2018

The Secure World Foundation worked with the Space Foundation in sponsorship of an invitation-only lunch salon titled “The Commercial Sector and Norms for Responsible Use of Space,” which was held midday on Thursday, April 19, 2018, at the 34th Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, CO. 

At this event, a wide variety of perspectives discussed the potential instructive role that the commercial sector can play in setting up norms of behavior for responsible space actors. With the space environment changing so rapidly, it is often the commercial actors who are creating the rules of the road and often have been quite visionary in figuring out how to ensure that near-Earth space is usable and accessible over the long-term.
