21 March 2013 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. AAAS Auditorium 1200 New York Ave, NW Washington, DC 20005
On Wednesday, February 20th, 2013, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Space Foundation, and Secure World Foundation (SWF) will team up to host a luncheon and panel discussion on Capitol Hill addressing the importance of sustainability in outer space. The United States relies upon space for a variety of essential daily services. Valuable space assets underpin our national security, help us forecast weather and predict natural disasters, enable GPS and satellite TV, spur our economy and industrial base, and keep U.S. troops and allies safe and secure around the world. Unfortunately, the current space environment threatens our ability to continue relying on these assets and all of the benefits they afford us. Speakers will discuss this situation from national security, legal, political, and commercial perspectives. This event is open to the public, but will take place strictly under Chatham House Rules. RSVP is required.
