    35th IAA/IISL Scientific Legal Roundtable: Conversations about Commercialization


    The IAA-IISL Roundtable for this year’s 2021 International Astronautical Congress in Dubai has adopted a more topical approach given travel uncertainties, postponing the original Artificial Intelligence (AI) Roundtable to the 2022 Paris meeting. In its place, the Roundtable Organizing Committee noted the growing interest in the scientific, technical, legal and economic consequences of the rapid growth in the number of worldwide commercial firms launching and operating space systems, resulting in an exciting opportunity for “Conversations about Commercialization” to address these transformations. Topics arising from commercialization will include conversations with experts about the implications of mega-constellations for space traffic management, licensing and certification of non-governmental space vehicles, launchers and passengers for an expanding space tourism industry, and scientific oversight of lunar and planetary explorations undertaken by commercial entities. We anticipate an engaging and informative exchange of viewpoints about this rapidly evolving space sector.
