Episode 009: Moriba Jah on space debris, and why it may be too late
Astrodynamicist Moriba Jah is one of the most dazzling figures on the international space scene, and he doesn't mince words when it comes to developing the near-Earth environment and addressing space junk. If we are really serious about the discovery of space, then we need to take our efforts up a notch. From a technical perspective, a Mars mission should be no obstacle and could start tomorrow, but the problem is us. Compared to the great seafarers and adventurers of old, we have forgotten how to take risks, slowing us down and putting our space plans in danger. Not to mention the fact that the window of opportunity to take risks in space is rapidly closing, as our waste in space is becoming a serious problem that we cannot get rid of anymore.
