Space players are often blamed for having turned Space into a rubbish bin. Into a dump, maybe (this is debatable), but definitely not a rubbish bin! Because a rubbish bin is an advanced instrument of waste management, involving many players. Managing waste is the responsibility of all members of Homo sapiens, from their unnatural actions.

After a quick overview of the situation and a reminder of the kind of events feared, Christophe Bonnal will focus on describing the actions that are taken at the international level and how well they are complied with today.

We cannot focus on responsible management of space debris alone, we must also take the opportunity to ask ourselves why it is there … and therefore what is the final goal of Space activities!
