Space as a Laboratory of Peace

The Global Space Law Center participated last week in C|M|LAW’s live-streamed Russia-Ukraine Conflict Panel Discussion. At the close of the panel, Prof. Mark J. Sundahl addresses the multiplicity of ways in which the conflict has touched space and encourages the international community to continue to use space as a “laboratory of peace” that has traditionally brought countries together even in times of war. Prof. Sundahl also warns Russia against using the type of kinetic antisatellite weapon that it tested just last year – a test that created massive clouds of dangerous orbital debris that continue to threaten the ISS and other spacecraft.
