Sustainable Space

We are rapidly expanding our reach into Earth’s orbital space and beyond. The adverse impacts of this development occur right here on Earth’s surface and in our atmosphere, in our near orbital space, and all the way to our ability to see into the stars. It is now urgent to extend our notions of protecting a sustainable planet to a sustainable vision beyond Earth’s boundaries. This focus features opinions and perspectives on the impact space development is having, is likely to, and how it can ensure a more sustainable future in space and on Earth. This new content is complemented by relevant research and opinion across the Nature Portfolio journals.
