Space Traffic Control

Guernsey: Wednesday 8th February 7:30pm, Les Cotils

Jersey: Thursday 9th February 8pm, Pomme D’Or Hotel

There is an increasing need for effective Space Traffic Control in order to manage the growing numbers of objects in Earth orbit, both active satellites and space debris. This talk will suggest measures that can be taken by satellite operators, licensing authorities, and companies which are developing space surveillance networks to deliver a sustainable environment for future space operations.

Stuart has a PhD in satellite constellation design and has recently written a book on ‘Space Traffic Control’. He has been involved with a wide variety of space missions, including TopSat, which set a satellite world record for “resolution per mass” when it was launched in 2005.

Stuart has been a fellow of both the Royal Astronomical Society and the British Interplanetary Society for more than 25 years.

For Jersey Lectures – the talk will start at 8:00pm (which is free to attend) but is proceeded by an optional dinner, starting at 6:30pm. If you wish to attend the dinner at a cost of £30pp bookings can be made via Eventbrite. If you have any dietary requirements, please email
