Stuart Grey | A History of Space Debris

Date/Time

Mar 27, 2019
05:00 PM until 06:30 PM

Description

The space race and more recent commercial space activities have led to a proliferation of objects in Earth’s orbit. What exactly are these objects? How do they behave? Who are we leaving them for? Is it junk or can it be reclaimed? Dr. Stuart Grey considers our role in polluting space and how this circulation of material impacts the future.

Cosponsored by the Department of Physics and Astronomy and Penn Sustainability. Part of the Wolf Humanities Center 2018-19 Forum on Stuff.
