- Well Structured
The satellites that you rely on for your weather forecasts, communication and navigation are in danger. They could collide with each other, or with one of the thousands of pieces of debris up there. Space expert Jamie Morin sketches a road map towards better managing these risks. Don’t expect a technological silver bullet in this levelheaded exposition of what needs to be done. Intensified tracking and large-scale information exchange should be able to prevent mayhem in orbit. The article will compel anyone fascinated by the evolving human infrastructure in space.
