SWF Staff Participate in Yale conference on Space Strategy

Monday, November 18, 2019

On November 16, Yale University hosted its first conference on the intersection of space, policy and science. This conference was intended to be a multidimensional look at the policy, legal, scientific, and economic aspects of how the United States sees space today — both as a place for discovery and innovation and as a security threat. The organizers, Yale students, realized that most discussions about space focused only on specific fields—mainly, scientific, economic, or political. Through the “Space Strategy for the 21st Century conference,” they hoped to create a forum for a more holistic approach to the topic, bringing together the leaders in these space-related fields to have a discussion about how these fields intersect to shape today’s issues surrounding U.S.’ activities regarding space. Washington Office Director Victoria Samson participated in a career panel and spoke on a panel about space security issues.
