Russia invaded Ukraine a month ago, and already we’ve seen substantial impacts on the commercial space business. Access to spaceports has been denied, launches cancelled and the world’s largest transport aircraft, frequently used for launch stages, destroyed. Engines, rocket stages, and components have been embargoed. Commercial space operators (like SpaceX/Starlink) have become non-state actors in the conflict.
Cost and risk factors are rising. What’s next?
Join the Arizona Technology Council and the Arizona Space Business Roundtable for a special panel discussion.
- What has been the immediate impact of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to the global commercial space market? How have commercial space operators been impacted to date? What happens next?
- How is the current conflict likely to impact the ongoing global drive toward commercial space, including government-sponsored space objectives in the near-term? Long term?
- How is the global commercial space market at greater risk today?
- What options should be considered to minimize terrestrial warfare’s impact on the commercial space market? Is that even possible?
