    Title

    Commercial Space Flight Safety and Emerging Issues

    Description

    This special session is seeking papers that will address commercial and government experience regarding the actual cost of implementing safety on human-rated spacecraft. Comparisons between the recurring costs of human-rated and robotic spacecraft manufactured by the same organisation are encouraged; such comparisons might be at the spacecraft or subsystem level as appropriate. Papers examining the non-recurring cost differences are also encouraged, as well as discussions of the differences in cost of launch site infrastructure and launch vehicles launching human-rated verses robotic spacecraft. In addition, each paper should address the following: It is commonly held that practices of commercial space (specifically the pursuit of efficiencies of process, cost, labour, etc.) and practices in space safety are in direct competition with each other, i.e., a gain in one is a loss to the other. Can a profitable space business be conducted safely?
