By Jacques Arnould, ethics expert, CNES.

Sixty years after the launch of the first Sputnik, space has entered the NewSpace era. The arrival of new state actors and private entrepreneurs has upset the balance found after the race to the Moon, the gradual occupation of the Earth’s orbits, the exploration of the solar system. The promises of space tourism, the projects to exploit the resources of space arouse interest, enthusiasm, but also criticism, even opposition to the continuation of the space adventure. So many opportunities, so many reasons to question the purposes of our space activities, their social, political, but also psychological, even spiritual consequences. Perhaps never has space been so fascinating
