Event description

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 (Teaching Fellow, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University of Strathclyde Glasgow) considers our role in polluting space and how this circulation of material impacts the future.

ASL Interpretation will be provided. If you have any accessibility questions or concerns, please email us.

Free and open to the public. Pre-registration requested.

Cosponsored by the Department of Physics and Astronomy and Penn Sustainability.
