    Title

    Joint Technical Session: “Near-Earth Objects & Space Debris”

    Description

    Artificial and natural space debris pose a growing concern while the awareness about hazards associated with Earth-crossing asteroids and comets is increasing. The rising number of artificial satellite objects in LEO, HEO, GEO as well as cis-lunar space, the potential for a rapid increase in the associated collisional debris could cause long-lasting impediments if not explored further. Similarly, Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) span sizes from micrometeorites to km-scale objects, posing a potential hazard to people and property both in space and on Earth. This Joint Session aims to explore common aspects of these challenges by inviting papers that: • Identify the physical threat domain, examine approaches to protecting lives and property on Earth and in space, and discuss how to facilitate local and international coordination. • Explore the collaboration potential and new developments in detection, characterization, observational techniques, tracking systems, and orbit prediction capabilities. • Discuss (or anlayze) the synergies in current efforts to mitigate their impact risks, and propose strategies for their deflection or avoidance. • Discuss risk management, highlight associated legal, policy, economic and ethical aspects, and consider how to inform and advise decision-makers. • Research other key fields, including public communication and education.
